As a result of the limit on entries this year, our Hiatus competition finished early, allowing us to announce the results today, on the Autumn Equinox. [For time obsessives like me that was at precisely 3:04 BST this morning.]
Congratulations to our Shortlist:
Thank you for surprising us, and/or making us laugh.
The winning spots were very close fought indeed, so unusually, we’re announcing the Runners-up:
and our winners are:
Gabriel Noel with Ode Against Daylight Saving
Karen Pierce with Pause
Congratulations to Gabriel and Karen, both of whom are new to Arachne Press. Their work will be published in eBook form, in time for the Solstice, alongside…
Remember! we have a public vote for the BEST story/poem from each of the previous Solstice Shorts anthologies, which will join Karen and Gabriel’s work in the ‘Best of’ eBook, to mark this year’s Solstice, while we wait for the next time the Solstice falls at a weekend, and the next festival.
You can vote here (deadline 30 Sept 2022)
