Sillitoe Short Story Competition Winners
The winners of the Alan Sillitoe Short Story Competition were announced at the Lowdham Book Festival on Saturday 25th June 2011.
The judges, David Sillitoe and Nicola Monaghan, were impressed with the standard of entries and the variety of approaches to the subject of ‘What would Arthur Seaton be like in 2011?’
They considered the first three stories to be equally good in content and style, so the decision was made to award the writers an equal share of the prize money, £60 to each winner. The two runners up received a selection of books, kindly donated by publishers Little, Brown and Random House.
Many thanks to all those who entered the competition – your support is greatly appreciated.
