The Orlando Prize for Short Fiction


I am pleased, amazed, proud and grateful to say that I have recently been awarded the Orlando Prize for Short Fiction. The competition, that included categories for Flash Fiction, Creative Non Fiction and Poetry as well, is run by the A Room of Her Own Foundation. Based in America, they focus on women’s writing. As part of the prize, I will be published in Waves: A Confluence of Women’s Voices, Featuring Maxine Hong Kingston. You can read about all the winners here. You can read my story here. Again, a huge thanks to AROHO for running this competition.
