Shortlist announced for the 2017 OWT Short Fiction Competition 1

Thanks to everyone who entered our short fiction competition this year, and congratulations to everyone who was longlisted. I’m sorry that we have to lose most of the longlisted stories at this stage. In 2016 we wrote about the difficulties involved in judging a competition such as this one, and a year later the process hasn’t got any easier. Different judges, following a different process, would no doubt have selected a different shortlist. So we wish all the longlisted authors success with placing their stories elsewhere. Meanwhile, we’re thrilled to announce that our winners will be selected from the following shortlist:

  1. Sudha Balagopal
  2. Jill Campbell Mason
  3. Darrel Duckworth
  4. Sleiman El Hajj
  5. Joe Giordano
  6. Rinat Harel
  7. Alaric Lejano
  8. Nathan Alling Long
  9. Douglas W. Milliken
  10. Mike Pearcy
  11. Krystal Song
  12. Hannah Whiteoak

Many congratulations to all of you. We will announce the three winners on Wednesday 19th April.
