Our first flash fiction competition attracted a huge number of entries, and it has taken longer than ever for the judges to chose the shortlist and the two winning stories. (Christmas and New Year, plus the small matter of relocating the entire Cranked Anvil HQ up to rural Northumberland, didn’t help to speed the process along!)
But the results are now in, and we are delighted to publish the following placed entries:
1st: Hannah Sutherland – Warm Milk
2nd: Rose Walker-Taylor – Soup Kitchen
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 to the shortlist:
David Butler (1 story)
Linda Fawke (1 story)
Mary Francis (1 story)
Martin Kirkbride (1 story)
Jodi Moxon (2 stories)
J M Thomas (1 story)
Gillian Welby (1 story)
Barbara Young (1 story)
As you can see from the list above, many of our writers enter multiple entries, and hve made it onto the shortlist with at least one of their stories.
Both our writing competitions are open all year round with quarterly deadlines, so why not have a go and enter your work – we love to read and publish the best, both here on our site and in our annual print anthologies.
