With thanks to Sarah Jane Dobbs, who has posted a great interview with Joe Melia of the Bristol Short Story Prize over at Thresholds. The second part of the blog is my thoughts on how to write stories for contests. There's also an audio recording of me reading my flash, After a Long Illness, Quietly at Home, which will be published and illustrated in new anthology, Voices, later this year. (I borrowed my NW accent from my paternal grandmother.) So, for tips on entering and winning writing contests, check out the blog, which includes some exciting news from the Bristol Prize people.
