About Our Judges

Streetlight’s editors, Erika Raskin and Suzanne Freeman, will be co-judging the short short fiction contest.

Erika Raskin
Erika Raskin is Streetlight magazine’s fiction editor. She published her second novel, Best Intentions, this year with St. Martin’s Press. Her first, Close, was considered crossover adult and YA fiction. She is working on a collection of linked short stories, set (as she is) in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Suzanne Freeman
Suzanne Freeman is social media editor for Streetlight. She is a novelist, book-reviewer and champion procrastinator (isn’t that what social media is all about?).
