‘Five-a-Day Friends’ short-listed for the NAWG Annual Writing Competition 2011

I’m chuffed to announce that my short story ‘Five-a-Day Friends’ has been short-listed for this year’s NAWG (National Association of Writers’ Groups) Annual Writing Competition in the ‘Final Line Category’. The winner will be announced during an award ceremony held at the Gala Dinner on Saturday 3rd September during the NAWG Annual Festival weekend. This year’s festival is being held at Nottingham University (2nd-4th September).

For those of you who came along to my reading at the Bolton Octagon theatre, yes this is the one with the pumpkin! The story has also been through the Manchester Speculative Fiction group–thanks you lot!

I’m really pleased to have been short-listed because this is one of my not-really-speculative-fiction stories, though it’s still a bit on the weird side. Good luck to the other short-listed authors!
