Fiction. Short Stories. The Little Bird Writing Contest is an international contest for innovative, emerging short fiction writers. The contest opens each spring when the birds come back and showcases the excellent stories that come from Sarah Selecky Writing School. VOLUME 9 features winning stories chosen by award-winning author Cherie Dimaline: "The Party Porch" by Rea Tarvydas, "The Catherine Series" by Anna Rumin, and "The Father King" by Dolly Reisman. Invisible Publishing's proceeds from anthology sales go towards the Pelee Island Bird Observatory and the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory to help protect the real little birds out there.
