Jason Sanford, founding editor of storySouth online literary journal, established the Million Writers Awards in 2004 to bring “needed attention and exposure to new and emerging writers while also showcasing the best online magazines.” We are in excellent company with this year’s award for best online publication going to Words without Borders. See all the awards and notable stories linked here.

The top ten stories of the year will be selected from this list and announced on May 20, after which public voting for the best story begins. Sanford will blog about the stories over the coming month.
