Short Story Competition 2015/16 - The Longlist

We can now reveal our longlist of finalists in the annual short story competition. The task of judging is shared between all of our members, and these are the ones that stand out so far. At this stage, none of us knows who the authors are, so no names will appear until the finalists are chosen. But whoever you are, congratulations! And to all the entrants, many thanks and keep writing. 

Meet the Members: Su Bristow

Hello from Su Bristow, currently Chair of Exeter Writers.  Next year, world domination…


What do you write?

I write stories with an element of fantasy.  My first novel, Sealskin, is a retelling of the Scottish legend of the Selkies, or seals who can turn into people.  It won the Exeter Novel Prize 2013, and as a direct result of that, I now have an agent and a publisher.  It will be published as an ebook in the second half of this year, and in paperback early in 2017.  The next step is the cover design, which should be ready in the new year.  Watch this space…
