Congratulations to everyone who made the final long-list and thank you all who entered the Shallow Creek competition!
It’s truly been a pleasure to read all the stories that came through – we hope you had as much fun writing them and creating the inner world of Shallow Creek as we did making the external one for you to travel around in!
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
The Short List will be published on Friday 12th October.
Naomi Booth (Sealed) will then judge the short listed entries and we will announce 1st, 2nd and 3rd place writers on 21st October.
We hope that even if you didn’t make the long list, you’ll still support the writers and the campaign as we make our way to find out who the champion of Shallow Creek will be!
Who knows…Mallum Colt may even throw a party and invite everyone involved…
