 Christmas Eve, 2016:

It's in the detail...

£200 awaited the winner, and we were stuck there for some time, arguing the merits of this and that out of a collection of unquestionably excellent entries. We got it down to four by being really picky about wanting a good story, well shaped, well realised, cleanly told, well presented, carefully edited, with no need of red pen work from us. Special mention for Susan Imgrund, Katie Lewis, Ian Tucker and Margi Hatjoullis all of whom had entries that were recommended for first place more than once along the way but it’s a competition, there has to be a winner, and we have chosen

 Susan Imgrund for “The Dictator’s Daughter”. 

The winners' anthology,

Apples, Shadows and Light

will be published on 19th May, 2017.

Author copies will be winging their way to the winners and shortlisted authors

ahead of that date.
