This is a copy of the newsletter that went out this evening to all our subscribers.
The shortlist is in.
The book is with the printers.
And we’re going to have a wingding.
Dear reader, thanks to those of you who entered or took an interest this year. It was a privilege and an adventure reading the submissions, of which there were 344. And it wasn’t easy narrowing them down to just ten, there was fierce contention for the places on the shortlist. Below you will see the ten stories that made it all the way. On December 8th in Willesden, Katy Darby will reveal which one has taken the Willesden Herald short story prize 2016. Cheers, Steve Moran (Editor)
