Bridport have published their list of prizewinners and shortlisted authors here. I have only read one of the stories – “On Creation” by Anna Britten. I can’t imagine the quality of those that beat this to the top three. I have read many, many short stories this year and On Creation is the one that stays with me, it is hugely ambitious, superbly controlled writing. Congratulations to all Bridporters – especially to Anna whose writing is inspiring and quite marvellous – I look forward to the anthology.
