Acceptances and Nominations

It’s been a busy few months since I wrote my last blog post. I was away from blogging and had focused on writing and submitting. I’m glad to share some of the acceptances and publications. Please click on the links below to read the stories. Hope you like them.


A Crib - Flash Fiction by Mahesh Nair

My long listed story A Crib was published on Reflex Fiction in the last week of August.



101 Words accepted my story, Bequest.


Thrilled to have my 75-word story Smudged lines scarred the photo on Paragraph Planet. Read it here.


My micro piece A School in Kabul was published in Issue 34 of Blink Ink Print. Theme: Uninvited Guests.

And the big winner this year was when my story A Bicycle was long listed at Bath Flash Fiction Award. Bath Flash often received around 1000 entries. The icing on the cake: From the long list of 50, I made it to the shortlist of 20, judged by Nuala O’Connor.

The Award anthology Things left and found by the side of the road is now available for purchase.

Thank you for your time and patience with this post.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2019.

  1. I am glad to hear that you were focusing on writing, submitting and winning! Congratulations dear Mahesh, I’ll visit again over the weekend to click on all the links and read more. Wishing you a wonderful holiday and festive season and a Happy 2019, more awards in the new year and Happy Writing. 🙂

  2. This blog has helped me to reach all your creative writings. Thanks!. It is always a pleasure reading your stories. Just keep going and you will reach higher levels of success. Wishing you all the best for 2019.

  3. Good to see your face appear in my Reader, Mahesh. Have missed your offerings. BUT. I am always in favor of following your bliss, whatever it might be. I have been far more into photography these days and posting to Instagram than I have been attentive to WP. But I do love the little virtual community I have here. So I continue, albeit with more or less heart, depending. 😉 Aloha, and blessings at the end of yet another year! ❤

  4. Congrats on the achievements, Mahesh. Time well spent and look at you making strides in your writing – and get recognised for it. The pieces you shared here were so full of emotion and you touched upon the sensitive topics of home and family, and while these two things are something we all cherish, they don’t always come easy. Here’s to a good holiday season for you and hope you continue writing in the year ahead 🙂

  5. Oh My… you have been busy following your dream and writing.. Wonderful to know you have had your work published.. Congratulations, and so enjoyed reading..
    Have a wonderful Holiday Season Mahesh.. Enjoy your time with your family..
    Love and Blessings 🙂 Sue
