This year has been pretty good so far with two new short stories published already. My story Festival was longlisted in the Galley Beggar Short Story Prize 2017/18 and although I didn’t win it was featured on their site along with nine other superb stories. The overall winner was C.S. Mee for her story Brothers. In fact, I recommend you read all ten listed stories – you won’t be disappointed. I’m particularly pleased to feature on this list with Galley Beggar Press who have published some excellent writers such as Toby Litt, Eimear McBride and Joanna Walsh. It bodes well for me as I work towards finishing my first collection of short stories (working title Love and Work) in 2018. Any publishers out there, feel free to give me a shout. I don’t mind, honest!
I’m delighted also to have a new story The Visitor featured at Fictive Dream this month. They previously published my story Special in August 2017. Fictive Dream is an excellent repository of prime examples of the short story form and I’m delighted that editor, Laura Black, has seen fit to feature my work again. Please have a read of my stories and dip in to others in the archive also.
