2021 Novelette-in-Flash Prize Shortlist

We’ve read the longlisted novelettes over and over and although every single one of them has much to recommend, we have whittled them down to a shortlist of six. Well done to everyone who made the longlist and congratulations to the writers of the following novelettes.


  • A Good Match
  • Ceiling
  • Homeless Camping Jump
  • Little Bird and Wolf
  • Monsieur
  • The Girl Who Survived

It’s now over to our judge, Mary-Jane Holmes, to choose the three winners who will be published in the anthology later in the year and win the cash prizes. Good luck everyone!

We’ll be running this contest again this year and will publish the new deadline when the winners from 2021 are announced.
