July 2020 – Shortlist and winners

We had a fantastic response to our special offer this quarter, with lots of writers taking advantage of being able to submit 4 stories for the price of 3. (We’re repeating the offer this quarter.) The judges have thoroughly enjoyed reading all the eligible entries, and it has been a tougher task than ever to get down to the shortlist and the final three placed stories.

But we’ve managed it, and here they are. Congratulations to:

1st: Sharon BoyleMoth Woman

2nd: Andrew StottThe Well

3rd: Annalise TaylorHow To Take An Inventory

Prize money is on its way to you, and your stories are published here on our website.

Well done to the following writers who made it onto the shortlist:

Matt Allen; Edward Barnfield; Cath Barton; Oliver Barton; James Hancock (2 stories); Margaret McDonald; Robbie McHarg (2 stories); Lindsay McKean; Liane Smith; Alan John Wilson.

Our next competition is now open: maximum 1500 words, any theme/genre, deadline October 31st.

And if you write flash fiction, our new competition is also open: max 500 words, deadline November 30th.
