April 2022 – Long List

The latest deadline for our short story competition closed last month, and today on the website we announce the long list.

With the launch of our new prompt competition in March, the judges are being kept busy all year round now, with three competitions running simultaneously throughout the year. Our submissions are ALWAYS OPEN! You can always find a writing competition to enter here at Cranked Anvil.
