August Top Three


First, thank you to all of the authors who submitted pieces for this challenge. We were blown away by the quality and quantity of stories we received. The panel was also impressed by the diversity of genres and the creativity behind the tales you wove!

This round of judges voting for The 4th Blank Page Short Story Competition 2018 is complete and our panel has voted for the top three stories which will now face the public vote.

The vote will run from Sunday the 26th of August until Tuesday September 4th. The overall winner will then be announced on Wednesday, September 5th.

But you’re not here to read about the competition, you’re here to read the top three we picked. Below you will find the three which we’ve selected as the most imaginative, inspiring and overall amazing work we were sent. So, read them all, vote for your favourite and don’t forget to tweet, share and general promote the person you think deserves to be the fourth winner of The Blank Page Short Story Challenge!!
