I’m pleased to report that my short story Old Monastery Pool has placed third in the 2016 Fishing Magic Writing Competition! A huge thanks to Fishing Magic, the panel of judges and congratulations to Altamash Kabir and Ian Nesbitt who placed first and second respectively. This is my second writing-related prize, the first being Best Short Story at the 2014 eFestival of Words.
Old Monastery Pool is a spooky tale of curses, giant fish and haunted watersides. It’s based on local folklore and you can read a version of the story by clicking here.
