Once again, our annual Short Story Competition has proven as popular as ever. We've had thousands of entries (2,134, to be precise!) and it's been an absolute joy to get a glimpse of your writing. A shortlist, however, had to be settled on, with this year's judge - our very own editor of the Writers' & Artists' Yearbook Alysoun Owen - whittling things down until just ten entries remained. And here they are!
Chasing The Shadow – Jane Fraser
Evie – David Simmons
Encounter – Annie Fairfax Kemp
Into The Abyss – Louise Mangos
A Taste Of Something Different – Lee Wadmore
Crescent Bay – Emma Davies
One Moment – Amanda Staples
Passed Over – Marie Gethins
The Suitcase – Hilary Hopker
The Pilgrims – Steve Hosking
The winner and two runners-up will be announced here before the end of March, with Alysoun due to provide feedback on each of the chosen entries.
