Longlist, Bath Short Story Award 2019

Many congratulations to all the writers who have been selected for the longlist of the 2019 international Bath Short Story Award. We received 1493 entries this year and thank you to all the world wide writers who entered. If the title to your story is on this list, please first check your emails. Sometimes, title names are duplicated among the entries and all longlisted writers will receive an email from us today confirming that they are on the list (18th June). Let us know if your title is here and you have not received an email. Judging is still in progress and all entries are judged blind. While you are welcome to share the news you are on this list on social media or elsewhere, please do not identify your story title with your name. Thank you. The short list of twenty titles will be announced in two weeks time.
