Malice in Memphis Wins 2020 Anthology Prize
“Mayhem in Memphis,” written by Malice in Memphis, won the 2020 Imaginarium Award for Best Anthology.
“Mayhem in Memphis” is a collection of short stories—some ghostly, some police procedural, some mystery—about Memphis celebrations. Fifteen local authors contributed their talents to this anthology published by Dingbat Publishing.
“Malice began writing short stories as a way to hone our skills and promote writers who haven’t had a lot of exposure,” said Jackie Ross Flaum, 2020 Malice President. “We have a talented team of volunteer editors to help writers polish their work.”
This is the second time a Malice collection of stories has won the Best Anthology award from the Imaginarium. “Elmwood Stories to Die For” took the 2018 prize.
The Imaginarium Convention, held virtually this year, is in its seventh year of providing creative writers and other talented artists with education, networking, professional, and mentoring changes. In 2019 The Writer Magazine named the convention the second best in the Southeast USA.
All Malice in Memphis anthologies are available on Amazon and at Novel. bookstore. Malice is now writing its fifth anthology of mystery and murder called “Lies Along the Mississippi.” No release date has been set for that book.
