Willesden Herald International Short Story prize

I'm really pleased to be able to reveal that I've been shortlisted for this years' Willesden Herald International Short Story Prize for my story, Dance Class. The story will shortly appear in an anthology of the competition, with the winners being announced shortly. It's exciting to appear on a list with nine other excellent writers, and I bet they're all as chuffed as I am to have their work appear in the book. Many thanks to Stephen Moran of the Willesden Herald for organising, and to David Means for judging.

The full Willesden Herald shortlist is here.

Fictions of Every Kind: Blast Off!

On Tuesday 12th March, I'll be reading of a couple of new stories at Fictions of Every Kind: Blast Off! I'll be appearing alongside the lovely and almost talented enough to hate Gareth Durasow, who last read at Fictions of Every Kind two years ago.

There's more info on the facebook events page here.
