Our BSL interpreters wish it to be known that this is not what they consider performance standard signing, they needed a chance to rehearse with the performers for that, but you will be able to follow the story and songs.
(Trumpets, drum roll, searchlights… you know, that sort of thing)
We are delighted to congratulate our twelve winners, who will receive various prizes including a surprisingly untacky trophy, and whose stories will be read at the festival, and published alongside a story from each of the judges in the forthcoming anthology, Solstice Shorts: 16 stories about time.
Five Judges Special Recommendations will be announced at the festival at SUNSET.
Thanks to everyone who took part (all 106 of you), we appreciate your interest in our festival which we hope is the first of many, so there will be other opportunities in the future.
Short-listed writers will receive brief feedback sometime next week.
Winners will be announced live at The Story Sessions during short story week on 19th November.
