Writing.ie Short Story of the Year 2017 Longlist Revealed
We are delighted to reveal the longlist for the Writing.ie Short Story of the Year – the stories are judged completely anonymously and our panel of shortlist judges Alison Lyons, Director of Dublin City of Literature, Simon Trewin Literary Agent with WME London and Bob Johnston of the Gutter Bookshop are now ruminating on choosing the final six stories that will be put to the public vote when the shortlists for all the categories in the Bord Gais Irish Book Awards are revealed.
The six shortlisted stories will be published in full on Writing.ie so that you can read them and vote.
The standard was extremely high again this year with a wonderful selection of submissions from publishers, journals and magazines. The longlisted authors are (in no particular order):
Éilís Ní Dhuibhne
Christine Dwyer Hickey
Very best of luck to all the authors! Watch this space for news of the shortlist!
