We're pleased to announce the results of our 2020 Short Story Competition!
Firstly, here are our two brilliant runners-up with a few words from our judge Kerry Hudson on why they made the cut. Congratulations to the following writers:
Sunburn by Rose-Glendon Doyle
Kerry: "What I was so impressed by in this piece was the quality of the writing and, in particular, the writers ability to use description in such a unique way that it felt you were reading about something fairly familiar for the very first time or suddenly seeing it from an entirely unique perspective. This is a poignant story that is full of heart."
A to Z of Wendy Harrison by Shelley Hastings
Kerry: "I loved this funny, thoughtful and entirely different take on what a person's narrative might look like. The voice and writing and so distinctive and I would happily have read much more of this piece."
We're pleased to announced that this year's winner is Rachel Bower with her story, Potted Plants.
