A huge congratulations to everyone who made it through to the shortlist, already you have secured an offer of publication in our anthology which will be out early next year. One of the ten will now be chosen as the overall winner of the competition, and will be in line for the £500 cash prize!
Everyone on the team also takes their hats off to the longlistees, such a beautiful selection of stories, and we are sad to have had to pick between them. We wish you all the hugest success in the future, and hope to read you again soon!
