A little update in case anyone is frantically checking my blog as I have been known to do when I've entered a writing competition.
All of the stories are with my panel of judges. I have 6 judges for the first round, and 2 have come back to me already. I will be posting a shortlist on or before Wednesday 27th April.
I have read through all of the stories myself and I have to say they are a very impressive selection. It is amazing to read 39 stories based on the same prompt and for there to be such a variation in theme and approach.
Well done to everyone who entered, in my eyes you are all winners!
