The Literateur and TLC were delighted to announce the winners of our joint competition on 11 November.
It was truly an enjoyable evening with readings by the judges, a discussion about the future of writing and, of course, our awards ceremony. All six of the winners were given a chance to read their short story or poem in front of a fully packed lecture theatre at the Free Word Centre. The winning submissions will be published in The Literateur and the winners will also receive an hour’s specialist consultation with The Literary Consultancy.
Our three judges, novelists Joanna Briscoe and Rebecca Abrams, and the poet Sarah Hesketh, found it very difficult to narrow it down to just six winners. Click here to read the winning submissions.
Alison Key, Short story, This Changes Everything
Uschi Gatward, Short Story, Birth Plan
Adam Steiner, Short Story, Living Through Saccharin
Selena Wisnom, Poetry, Mushrooming
Clémence Sebag, Poetry, Inventory
Tom Bailey, Poetry, Notes to the Construction of Beverley Minster
We would like to thank The Literateur editor Kit Toda, everyone who submitted their work and those who attended our awards evening.
