'LIPS' WINS THE 2018 TO HULL AND BACK SHORT STORY COMPETITION FOR HUMOUROUS STORIES

Woohoo! My story ‘Lips’ has won FIRST PRIZE in the 2018 To Hull And Back Short Story Competition. That’s £1,000, published in a print anthology, the cover of which will bear my face, and a videod day out in Hull with Chris Fielden who runs the comp.

With the Dorset Fiction Award for ‘Cows’ in July that’s two First Prizes in four months.
