Shortlist BSSA 2020

Many congratulations to the twenty writers shortlisted in our 2020 Award. Kate Johnson, our 2020 shortlist judge now has the stories and the final results will be out on August 15th. As judging is still in progress and stories are judged blind, we ask you not to link your name with your story. But you are welcome to share on social media and elsewhere that you are listed. Best wishes to all for the next stage.
