What makes a good story? Something different for every one of us, but after reading many stories over the years, one point suddenly shone out from our latest call, our Winter Short Story competition: a good story often improves with a second read, even a third or fourth. Last year’s winners all satisfied that criteria too.
Our short-listed stories this year are:
Another Van Gogh
Invisible – A Love Story
More Of A Wednesday Girl
The Blue Room
The Last Post
Westbound On A Tank Of Desperate Hope
Who Causes Thunder
Why We Never Did Hamlet
For all writers whose story is not on our list, please remember that the difference between being there and not is often paper-thin. On another day, in another place your story could have been there.
To all our writers, a huge thank-you for submitting your work to Askance.
