StorySouth Million Writers Awards

Here at ShortbreadStories HQ we feel very privileged to have read a whole host of amazing stories. Over the years we’ve read stories from all over the world, stories which made us laugh, cry, shudder and gasp in awe. All this time, we’ve been so proud to have these tales on our very own site.

As a result we’ve known for many years that amazing literature can be found right here on the interweb. And it would appear we are not alone in thinking this. StorySouth Million Writer Awards was created by Jason Sandford more than ten years ago, (yes way back when everyone thought the internet, never mind e-publishing, was a passing fad) as a way to honor and promote the best fiction published in online literary journals and magazines.

This year ShortbreadStories is delighted to announce that we are nominating three of our favourite stories to be included in the StorySouth Million Writer Awards. Our chosen stories are:

*This Time by Mary Edward
*The Burgundy Boy Speaks by Steve Douglas
*Waiting To Be Heroes by Alan MacKay

You can also take part in this award by nominating your own favourite ShortbreadStory to the Million Writer Awards directly. For the story to be eligible please only nominate stories which are over a 1000 words in length, were published during 2011 and have appeared as either a Friday Story, or an audio story.

And, of course, we’ll keep you posted on the results of the award.
