I have a short story on this list. This is my third year being shortlisted in this competition. First time was fiction, second time memoir, third time fiction and well...you know what they say about third time... https://writebythesea.ie/writing-competitions/
I get a mention in this lovely piece about this amazing award I won in 2019, that was cancelled in 2020, went online in 2021 and hopefully will run in 2022! https://www.icelandwritersretreat.com/four-reasons-you-should-attend-the-iceland-writers-retreat-2/
My first EVER short story in print, which is momentous in itself but doubly so because I find short stories hard to write. I am drawn much more to creative non-fiction, but I worked hard on this and it is WONDERFUL to see it in print with my name. Beautiful cover. And...my name in lights!!
