Wild times in Huebertland. Last week I posted to announce that my story, “Enigma,” had made the longlist for the CBC Short Story Prize. This week it’s a thrill to say the story has made the shortlist. This is really a singular honour for me. You can read my story, as well as the other finalists, here.
I’m deeply grateful that judge Sheldon Currie and the folks at The Antigonish Review gave my story, “Jellyfish,” first place in the Sheldon Currie Fiction Contest. The story appears in TAR 183 (pictured below), which has a pretty rugged-looking jellyfish on the cover. My story is about sickness and addiction and water and I’m really excited it found such a lovely home. TAR has published my work twice already and as a young Nova Scotian writer it means a lot to have the support of this fine journal.
