Short story wins runner up in ‘The Prolitzer Prize for Prose Writing, 2012’

My short story ‘A Fig Still Warm from the Sun’ has won one of two runner up places in the ‘Prolitzer Prize for Prose Writing, 2012’. Judged by journalist and author, Mark Piggot, the first prize went to Caroline Healy with ‘Baby River’ and the two runner up prizes went to Mark Wagstaff with ‘The Forties’, and myself. My story will be published in Issue 10 of Prole, April 2013.
