….And so, for now, it’s come to an end. We’ve run four consecutive short story weekend challenges and have been delighted with the response. We certainly will be running more competitions in the future so don’t go too far.
Our judges receive all entries anonymously from our submissions team, this ensures that winning stories are picked purely on merit, and fulfils our commitment to publishing new and best-selling authors, regardless of who they are. Also, this leads to quite heated debate among the judges. This week they were impressed with the quality and torn between four winners. As it’s the last week and to say a big thank you, we’ve decided to announce FOUR winners this week (all receiving prize money and publication). And here they are (in no particular order):
– James Brinsford
– Morgen Bailey
– Joel Blumenau
– Alexis Larkin
A very honourable mention to Richard Barr, who just missed out.
Thanks again, and we’ll be in touch with the next competition in the not-too-distant future.
