My personal thanks to everyone involved in the competition, and especially to Ceri Pridding for her unfailing support.
Well-constructed and emotionally charged story about the fragility of life and the sorrows of war from the perspective of a poppy.
The anguish of a captured tiger as she laments the loss of her freedom and her cubs. Moving story, well written.
Deforestation from the perspective of the trees, who take their revenge by going on oxygen strike. Impressive story, beautifully written.
Very clever story exploring the influence of the definite article in English. It behaves as a kind of showbiz agent, picking nouns from obscurity and putting them in the spotlight. Excellent prose style.
Paints some stirring images of the destructive aftermath of a terrible battle. Mixes in a past timeline of the build-up. The shock of a young girl as she discovers the body of her father is well written.
A touching portrait of an elderly man struggling with dementia. Also makes the reader think of the situation from his wife's perspective.
