The Literateur and TLC Announce Competition Winners

November 12, 2010 | TLC Talent

LiterateurThe 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.
