Tomorrow we showcase the first of the stories shortlisted for The Strictly Writing Award. We'll be posting one story here on the last Friday of each month for the next ten months.
Thank you to everyone who has sent us a story so far. The truth is there were several we could have chosen for the showcase piece tomorrow. If your story was not selected this time it still might appear in later months. We’ll be choosing the shortlisted stories from the new ones we receive and the ones we’ve already read.
If, in the meantime, your story is published elsewhere, or successful in another competition, just let us know and we'll remove it from our stock of stories for consideration.
We’re having a ball reading all the stories and we’re excited about posting the first one tomorrow. Please keep them coming - the pace is gathering as we get more attention on writing sites and competition listings, but there’s still plenty of time to enter.
