We had a fantastic response to our short story competition, there were in excess of 200 submissions, so it took a little bit longer than expected to read them all.

However, they have now been narrowed down to a shortlist of twelve which have all been posted to our blog. There are links to each of the stories below.

A Constant Heart by Julie Whittingham
A Place in the Sun by Alyson Hilbourne
A Room for Freya
by Rebecca Burns
Behind the Flock by Kathryn Freemen
Driven by Paul Weidknecht   *WINNER*
Good Intentions
by Pat Ashford
Goodbye by Laura Huntley
Lifelines by Jackie Taylor   *RUNNER UP*
Martin’s Holly
by Tony Black
Neighbourhood Watch 1998
by Paul Warnes
Paper Castle by Rosemary Hayes
Time to Move On by Tess Niland Kimber   *RUNNER UP*

Our Judge, Anne Aylor, is now reviewing the shortlist and we should be ready to announce the winner during week commencing 6th February.

In the meantime I have listed some of the statistics from the competion in this post - by the numbers. It was a fascinating mix.
