The Apple
Published in the Noyo River Review on December 16, 2014

The Noyo River Review includes selected work from participants at the 25th Annual Mendocino Coast Writers Conference in Fort Bragg, California, July 31–August 2, 2014. “The Apple” by Margit Sage won first place in the Short Story category. Judge Natalie Serber said of the work, “From the first gripping image, this story unravels in a dystopian near future that keeps the reader turning pages. The characters are sympathetic and recognizable, for in this challenging place, where citizens have chips planted in their brains to maximize their performance, the deepest struggle is one we are all familiar with, the struggle to belong, to combat loneliness. Margit Sage has made some bold strokes in creating her vivid landscape of the future.”
