We discovered on Monday morning that both When Planets Slip Their Tracks by Joanna Campbell, and also Llama Sutra by Melanie Whipman, have been long listed for the Edge Hill University Short Story Prize - the only UK prize for a published collection of short stories. The prize is open to all, and there are some established writers on the list - so it is fantastic to see two InkTears published authors appearing. (In fact, the eagle-eyed may even notice a third person - another of our previous prize winners also made the list, although we didn't publish her collection...). We are utterly delighted for both authors, and wish them the best of luck in the next stage of the competition!
