The BPP Short Story Competition Anthology 2016 will be out in November this year. Congratulations once more to Anne Wilson the winner with, ‘On the Day of the Dead’ and to Graeme Hall in second place with, ‘The Photographer.’
When Lissa Byrne inherits her grandfather’s house in the Malvern Hills, the hostility of disappointed relatives seems like trouble enough. The old man’s dying plea for her forgiveness is a mystery that Lissa cannot begin to solve.
Her cousin’s arrival forces her to think again. Kit Pevensey, her first love and once her closest friend, has been gone for five years and has regrets of his own; but their grandfather wrote to Kit just before he died, with a warning that Lissa is in danger.
As Lissa and Kit try to rebuild their relationship, events draw them ever deeper into their family’s troubled history. The race is on, from the Malvern Hills to the snow-swept coast of West Wales, to unearth the story of a lost generation before it’s too late; for the past can do worse than haunt your dreams and betray your most treasured memories.
Black Pear Press are delighted to announce that the anthology of short stories by entrants to the Evesham Festival of Words competition, is now available here.
Evesham Festival of Words took place in 2016 for the first time. It aimed to offer something to writers, poets, book lovers, and all those who are passionate about words, whether written, spoken or sung. The Short Story Competition was, and will continue to be, an important part of the Festival and the organisers have been absolutely delighted with the response, both in terms of number and quality of entries. If you entered and weren’t shortlisted this year, there is always next year. Meanwhile, keep on writing!
