Members’ Short Story Competition
Steyning Short Story Prize 2018 - Longlist
Many thanks to all who entered the Steyning Festival 2018 Short Story Award, the longlist is published below and is anonymous since judging is ongoing for the shortlist. If you are on the longlist, congratulations!
Please do not unblind yourself on social media by associating your name with the story title.
When the shortlist is published, the writers’ names will be included for both the longlist and the shortlist.
If you have not made the longlist, commiserations and thank you for your entry. We received 141 stories from across Sussex and the standard was very high. There were many that just missed out and we have made the longlist a little longer than planned due to the high number of entries.
We are aiming to publish the shortlist by May 7th, at which time the 6 shortlisted entrants will receive their free invites to the awards event in Steyning, which will be held on the evening of Thursday June 7th.
Tickets for the event will go on sale on the Steyning Festival site on April 20th.
