Alpine Fellowship Writing Prize

I was checking through my submissions when I discovered that I had made it to the shortlist for the Alpine Fellowship Writing Prize for a short story I sent to them on the theme of freedom. It’s an extraordinary prize which invites winners and runners-up to participate in their international symposium.

I’m extremely honoured to have reached this stage alongside some wonderful writers. I often wonder if I am too thin-skinned to be a professional writer, but then something like this happens and I remember that the magic and the excitement is what it is all about, the chance to spark something in a reader’s imagination and that I feel is enough to make the endless rejections worthwhile.
