The number of entries to date: 85
Possibles for shortlist: 3 is stretching it
There is still all to play for. Closing date is December 18th, but it helps to have the entries more evenly distributed rather than all at the last minute.
Hundreds, getting on for thousands enter but only tens of copies of the anthologies are bought. Please consider buying some of these books to read the winning short stories from previous years:
New Short Stories 3 - featuring "Work" by Jo Lloyd
New Short Stories 1 - featuring "Kid in a Well" by Willie Davis
Fish Drink Like Us - featuring "Secure" by Mikey Delgado
