Shortlisted, Twice

A short story of mine was shortlisted for the 2018 Bridport Prize in the UK and another shortlisted for the 2018 Tulip Tree Press Stories that Must Be Told contest. In both cases I’m in good and broad company, making me wonder how long a shortlist has to be before it becomes a longlist, but I don’t wonder long. It’s nice to be in good and broad company. Thank you, Bridport Prize and Tulip Tree.

The stories? For the Bridport Prize, it was “We Started and We’ll End in the Treetops” and for the Tulip Tree, “Love Is a Rock,” both stories from my collection Useless Guide to Modern Romance. Someday I hope to publish all of them, together or separately.
