I’ve been shortlisted for the Peter Cowan 600 Short Story Award, for a story of less than 600 words. I won’t know until next weekend whether I’m one of the main prizewinners or not. I fully expect to fulfil my usual role of bridesmaid – but you never know! You can find the story here, as the May entry on the ‘Extract of the Month’ page.
Update: The results are now out. There were 307 entries, three cash prizes, five highly commended entries and five commended. Mine was one of the highly commended.
