2015 – Thank you to all our supporters

Thank you to everyone who entered the 2015 Bath Short Story Award, followed us on social media, shared our news and bought our anthologies. We like to motivate you, but we  appreciate the energy you bring to the Award. It makes it all so much fun.

This year, over one thousand people entered the  2015 Award. There was a high standard of entries and it was hard to whittle down the long list to send a short list to our judge, literary agent, Carrie Kania.

Highlights  included:

  • Ringing up the winners – we all love doing this!
  • compiling the 2015 anthology and receiving it from the printers
  • the anthology launch, and having a two page spread on the evening in The Bath Chronicle
  • Our two events – the workshop with Paul McVeigh on Writing a Killer First Page and the Evening of Readings with Paul, and authors Rachel Heath and Sarah Hilary.

Our reading team is poised for the initial Big Read for 2016. Entries are coming in steadily from around the world. We hope you would like to enter. We close on 25th April – just over 16 weeks time. Not long really. Keep checking our countdown timer on this site and sign up to receive posts  and regular emails from us.

Have a great Writing New Year.

Jude, Jane and Anna
