Geist announces the winners of their 9th Annual Literal Literary Postcard Story Contest. "For eight years now," the editors say, "Geist has been asking writers to send in short stories inspired by postcard images. This year Geist shook things up by asking contest entrants to write short stories inspired by postcards they had made themselves, or by images in the public domain."
