55 Fiction 2018



You can say a lot in 55 words. You can kill someone, love someone, or save someone. Tell stories about torture, divorce, or family drama. Make political statements. Riff on societal issues. But there are only a select few who can do it well enough to get published! For the last three decades, the Sun and New Times have brought you reader-submitted stories for the annual 55 Fiction contest. This year, hundreds of entries came from as far away as the Netherlands and as close as Santa Maria. Our 2018 judges include Proofreader Andrea Rooks, New Times Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey, Staff Writer Chris McGuinness, and Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood. So get ready for tales with surprise endings, lots of death, and a rabbit or two.

Weekly Poll
What should Santa Barbara County prioritize for regulation and ordinance updates?

Cannabis all the way. Growers should be required to get a conditional use permit.
Child care facilities deserve our attention. There are too many barriers for these businesses.
It's not glamorous, but wireless communication needs to come into compliance with federal rules.
The environment should be prioritized. Oil and gas operations on land need more regulations.
