Quiet Man Dave Prize Finalist!!
This has been a pretty good month for writing news! Both my stories made it through to the shortlist for this amazing contest at Manchester Metropolitan University, honouring the memory of much-loved Manchester writer and theatre critic Dave Murray. There's a link here to the shortlists for the flash fiction and non-fiction contests, and you can read the bios of the eleven finalists and twelve shortlisted stories, including mine, if you want to. https://www.mmu.ac.uk/qmdprize/finalists-and-winners/
The results are announced on Thursday, but whatever the outcome, being on this stellar list twice over feels like a beautiful result.
