Help Spark celebrate our first two years by voting for your favorite selections from our collection so far! When the votes are tallied, we’ll take the highest-voted pieces—two from each volume—and compile a special-edition collection featuring your choices plus four new stories and poems. The collection will be available to all patrons with an active pledge at SparkAnthology.org/support.
Voting has now closed! Here are the top three highest-voted pieces from each volume. Note that authors and poets are free to decline the invitation to have their work included in the special collection, and that each writer will have no more than one piece featured, so the final line-up may still change.
- The Littleness of Susan Brauer by Scott Warrender
- By the Gun by Alexis A. Hunter
- Last Rites by George Wells
- Oh, How We Lived and Died There by Kate Raynes
- Patron Saint of the Lowlands by George Wells
- The Point of No Return by Beatriz F. Fernandez
- Letters to Mary by Megan Turner
- Jukebox Lament by John W. Buckley
- Sleepless on Medicine Creek by D.A. Gray
- Slip Back, Move Forward by Su J. Sokol
- Whose Music is the Gladness of the World by George Wells
- The Vandalists by Natalia Theodoridou
- Letter from Lara, Yuriatin, 1920 by Beatriz Fernandez
- Where Never Snows by George Wells
- Disappearing by P. Jo Anne Burgh
Hi! By becoming a patron (the smallest pledge), will I get only the *future* volumes of Spark or does it contain past issues as well…? It’s a great deal either way, but it’s not clear to me. Thanks!
“—or get all our eBooks by becoming a patron now.” (on this page)
“A dollar a month doesn’t hurt at all! As our thank-you for your continued patronage, you’re entitled to the eBook of each and every future volume of Spark: A Creative Anthology.” (on the pledge page)
When you complete your pledge, you’ll get a link to download everything we’ve published so far, and you’re entitled to everything we publish in the future as long as you remain a patron.
We really only promise future eBooks, but I guess that this Readers choice survey lets the cat out of the bag that when you commit to $1 a month or better, we gush our thank-you by giving you access to eBooks for all volumes (and always have).
Thank you for the quick response! That is an incredible deal. Can’t wait to read and vote. 🙂
And the winners are…?
Holy smokes, in the relocation I completely forgot to post the tallied results! I have them. Let me get that posted.
Cool, so when is this special collection be coming out?
