January 2014 update

The 2013/14 short story competition closed at the end of December and the reading is progressing slowly but steadily towards a short list. Details will be posted here as soon as there is more news.

Friends of New Short Stories and the Willesden short story competition continue to delight and amaze with new publications. Here are two that have come to our attention this month.

Geraldine Mills third short story collection “Hellkite” has been launched in Dublin. It includes her Willesden prizewinning story “Frost Heave”. For more information and updates please visit Geraldine’s blog.

Morowa Yejidé’s Time of the Locust, which was a 2012 finalist for the national PEN/Bellwether Prize and received First Honorable mention in the national 2011 Dana Awards is to be published in June 2014 through Atria Books an imprint of Simon & Schuster. More

Cheers,
Steve
