ECHO themed flash shortlist

We have our final 10 stories that have gone to our judge, Vanessa Gebbie, to make the final decision on. Well done to all who were longlisted and congrats to the writers of the following stories (don’t tell which is yours though)!


  • Aircooled VW Baja
  • Echoes of Pink and White
  • Embers
  • Grief like the apple tree grows crooked not straight
  • If you scream long enough into the darkness
  • Same-same but different
  • So you wrote a play about me
  • The Last Birthday Party
  • Two months later
  • What’s Wrong With a Kebab, Anyway?

We’ll be back with the results soon – good luck to all!

In the meantime, the final themed flash comp of 2021 ends in December and the judge is Shaun Levin. See all the info here.
