January 2022 – Long List

We’re working overtime at Cranked Anvil HQ at the moment, putting in place all the new content we’ll be offering this year. The first thing we’re getting ready is our brand new Prompt Writing Competition. The first submission window opens in March, and we can’t wait to read your brilliant stories. As always, we’ll be publishing the winners here on the website, as well as in future print anthologies.

Which leads us nicely on to our January long list. Once again, the judges were bowled over by the standard of entries, and we’re delighted to announce the long list today. Congratulations to the following authors:
