I’ve got a wee bit of exciting news to share. My short story The Emancipation of Google has made it onto the longlist for the Inktears Short Story Contest 2015. Whoop!
This story is one of the Million Eyes Short Stories, and while I don’t want to give too much away, I will say that it’s inspired by a popular conspiracy theory…
I’ve talked about the Inktears contest before, as my story Rachel Can See made it onto the longlist last year. It’s an annual competition and the winning stories are published to the Inktears Readership, which is a community of email subscribers. Rachel Can See stopped at the longlist, so here’s hoping The Emancipation of Google gets a bit further.
Even if it doesn’t, though, it’s great to make it onto the longlist. Inktears is a very popular competition and the top prize is a hefty £1,000.
And this is actually the second accolade The Emancipation of Google has won, which is great. It was also the winning entry in the Founders Cup 2015, which is an internal competition run by Rushmoor Writers.
I shall be keeping my fingers and toes crossed… 🙂
