I’m delighted that a new story of mine has been shortlisted for Short Fiction’s Wild Writing Prize. I’ve struggled for years to write stories I was happy with but this one felt like it had potential, and so I’m really happy it’s been recognised in this way in the competition.
The names of the shortlisted titles have been released on Short Fiction’s website but, in order to ensure anonymity during judging, I can’t say which one is mine – but I will say more, including how the story came about, once the winner and runners-up have been announced in June. Thanks to the readers of the prize for choosing my work to go through to the judges. I’m thrilled the story resonated with you.
