2020 Novelette-in-Flash Prize Shortlist

We are so excited to reveal the shortlist of our first ever Novelette-in-Flash Prize. These 8 novelettes have now gone to our judge, Damhnait Monaghan, to make the final decision. Many congratulations to the writers of all of these stories, and our longlisted writers too.

The 3 winners that she picks will be published in an anthology later this year and we’re really looking forward to bringing you whichever stories she chooses, as they are all deserving of a win. It will be a hard choice!

Our shortlisted novelettes-in-flash are:

  • Homemade Weather
  • Lessons In Translation
  • Microcosmos – Life, Love, Death etc in 20 Tiny Pieces
  • Stubborn Strong Bones
  • The Animals Around Me
  • The Impossibility of Wings
  • Top Table
  • What The Fox Brings In Its Jaw

If your story appears here please don’t announce what it’s called as judging is done anonymously.

We will have the results in the first week of March – good luck everyone!
