Writing competitions are always difficult, not just whether your piece wins or not, or at least makes a long or short list, but if your work doesn’t make the latter stages you never know whether the judges liked it and it just didn’t make the last list, or they thought it was complete garbage and your submission has long since been lining the cat’s litter tray.
However, I was absolutely delighted to learn I’ve won The Aleph Writing Prize 2019. The prize will be the publishing of my story Triptych in a limited edition pamphlet.
It’s the first time a work of mine has been published independently, and I’m really looking forward to getting it into my hands.
More details to follow when it becomes available.
We are pleased to announce that @colm_oshea has won the writing prize for his work ‘Triptych’. https://t.co/YXTWdAit93—
