December Top 3

First, thank you to all of the authors who submitted pieces for this last 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!

The last round of judges voting for The 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 from Wednesday December 12th until Tuesday December 18th . The overall winner will then be announced on Wednesday, December 19th.

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 promote the person you think deserves to be the first winner of The Blank Page Short Story Challenge!!
