Who’s judging the Flash Fiction competition?

Caroline Jaine

As we’ve previously announced, Askance’s founder, Caroline Jaine, will make the final selection. Although Caroline is no longer formally connected with Askance, she was delighted to accept the invitation to choose the winners from the shortlist. Caroline is an accomplished artist and writer of short and long fiction in addition to being the author of the widely acclaimed A Better Basra.

Selecting the long and short lists will be two long-time friends of Askance, both skilled in the art of storytelling.

Grace Keating

Canadian Grace Keating has written many short stories, winning  and being short-listed in competitions in the USA and the UK. Her stories have featured in two anthologies, including Askance’s Positional Vertigo.

David Wiseman – Amtraking across the USA

David Wiseman is British, although now living in Canada, and has edited Askance’s Homes and Positional Vertigo to which he also contributed. He’s also won and been shortlisted for several competitions in the UK and the USA. Askance has published three of his novels.

Launch of Positional Vertigo

On 6th November seven of the 16 authors gathered with friends and supporters for the launch of the Askance 2013 short story anthology, Positional Vertigo, at The Hopbine in Cambridge.  Presentations were made to the winner and runners up of the 2012 short story competition, and an impromptu reading session was instigated by a friend of one of the authors.  Askance would like to thank all that came to celebrate and all that contributed to the book.  Look out for the 2013 competition!
