After days of reading and consideration, we have narrowed our 65 entries down to a longlist of 11 entries.
And so, without further ado, the longlisted entries, in no order of preference aside from entry number, are... <cue fanfare>
#17 An Eclectic Muse
#20 Kwee Writings
#26 My First Book
#45 The Golden Eagle
#68 Hugo van Zijl
Congratulations, guys! The judges will continue our deliberations through the weekend, and announce a shortlist of 6 from these entries on Monday Nov 7th, which will then be put up to the public vote. Until then, we will require all longlisted participants to do the following:
- Consolidate all four parts of your story into one, and have the full story posted on your blog by Sunday November 6th. This will make it easier for voters to read your story in its entirety without having to trawl through endless blog posts.
- E-mail J.C. (me) HERE with a direct URL to your full story. Should your story be shortlisted, we will link the post on Monday 7th directly to your stories to make it easy for voters to find and read your entries.
Can't wait for polling to start on Monday! You are all already winners in our opinion!
