It’s here – the longlist for our 2020 Short Forms contest! A big thank you to all the writers who shared their short form pieces with us and our esteemed judge, Lisa Bird-Wilson, especially during such a strange, tumultuous year. Here are the seven longlisted submissions from this year’s contest!
Berries, by Cayenne Bradley
The Mushroom, by Jazmine Aluma
The Night Light, by Charlie Stephens
Theme Song for Loneliness in a Pandemic, by Anna Swanson
Wellness Check, by Ashley Best
Tehranto, by Nedda Sarshar
Mind the Sentencing Gap, by Erin Klingmann
2020 has been a year to remember, for many reasons, but the beautiful submissions from all of our entrants has made the isolation brought on by 2020 so much more bearable. We can’t wait to share the shortlist and winners with you very soon. In the meantime, check out our 2021 Fiction Contest, open until March!
