The Weekly Knob, an online publication, has chosen “Feuds,” a short story by Eric Beversluis, as one of the two winning stories in its first story competition.
Each week The Weekly Knob sets a household item as a prompt and writers have the week to submit a story. In their first contest, they gave writers a month and provided this photo as the prompt:
In the winning story, Liza, orphaned and widowed, receives a photograph of her grandmother racing a motorcycle. A grandmother she did not know existed, who wants to see her now. Can she forgive her for all the years of neglect? And what about Sheriff Bartkowski, who keeps trying to get her to accept his apologies for the stupid arrest?
