Short Story Competition | 2018 Winners

Congratulations to Pam Keevil who is the winner of our 2018 short story competition with Throw the ball, count to ten, make a wish, do it again, a deceptively simple tale featuring a transformative conversation between a young boy and his elderly neighbour.

Congratulations also to Louise Hird who is our runner up with Remembering Bert which, without sentimentality, takes us inside the head of an elderly lady with dementia.
