Thresholds Feature Writing Competition

My essay about Robert Shearman's stories has been shortlisted for the Thresholds International Feature Writing Competition. Robert is an incredibly inventive writer and he's also a lovely person who was really generous to me when I first started writing. 


As ever, the shortlist sounds really interesting and I'm looking forward to reading all of the essays and learning more about some brilliant writers and short stories. 
Here's the list:
Carys Bray: The Short Stories of Robert Shearman: Horror and Humanity
Stephen Devereux: Where are you Helen Harris?
Dan Powell: Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s The Push Man and Other Stories
Angela Readman: What We Talk About When We Talk About Editing
Gill Thompson: A Woman of Words
Claire Thurlow: on Alice Munro
I was shortlisted in 2012 with this piece on Helen Simpson's short stories in 2012 and with this piece on Adam Marek's short stories in 2013. Check out the Thresholds site, it's a great resource for short story writers and readers. 

* Congratulations to Sharon Telfer who won this year's competition, and to runners-up Dan Powell and Gill Thompson.
