We are delighted to announce the winners of our Winter 20/21 Short Story competition. After a lot of reading and heart-searching here’s the list:
Our winner is:
Magic And The Art Of Thrift Store Shopping With Ma by Nick Trapani. Although in some ways this is an old story of clothing with magical powers, Nick Trapani gives it a totally believable and novel twist which immediately appeals to anyone who remembers those awkward teenage years.
Our two runners up are:
A Tangled Web by Hugh Kellett
The Hell Of It by David A Wimsett
Congratulations to not only these three authors but to all the others who sent us their work. As we so often say to disappointed writers, keep writing, the difference between being on a list like this and not is extremely small.
These stories will soon be available to read on our stories page.
