Is Your Story On The Long List?
Exeter Writers Competition News -
The Long-List Announcement!
The first round of reading of short story entries has been completed.
We received a record-breaking number of entries and there are some really great stories on the list so it’s going to be really difficult for us to reach a consensus.
We judge the short stories as a group and there are 24 of us with varied tastes and interests, so there really is no telling what kind of story will win.
If your story is on the following list then good luck to you, and if not, then commiserations and best of luck next year.
Check out some of our posts on how to write short stories for competitions to make sure you did everything you could to make your story the best it could be: Five Ways to Give Your Story a Wow Factor Ending, Secrets to Win Exeter Writers Short Story Competition, Write Your Best Short Story Competition Entry, and Story Craft With Jo Cole.
So without further ado here's the Long-List in Alphabetical Order:
8 Foot Jesus
Double Vision and Second Sight
Four Seasons With Brian
It is Easy Enough To Smile
More of Your Love
The Fifty-Nine Second Watch
The Nutting Girl
The Weird Event
Your Car Has Broken Down
