I was shortlisted for the Wasafiri New Writing Prize 2018

My short story ‘Mountain of the Night’ was shortlisted for the Wasafiri New Writing Prize 2018 in the Life Writing category! Wasafiri is the UK’s leading magazine for international contemporary writing, and alongside fourteen other pieces, my story was selected from over 800 entries!

Reflecting on her own category, Elleke Boehmer noted that ‘the life writing this year was strong and evocative of many involving lives lived around the world. The shortlisted five pieces of life writing are representative of this strength, and of the dilemmas and losses that many of us grapple with.’

The winners of the Poetry, Fiction, and Life Writing categories will be announced on October 25th.
