Shortlisted- The Abyss of Alice

I am so happy to share this news with my followers: one of my short stories, The Abyss of Alice, has been shortlisted. Out of 13,000 submissions, 1,025 stories have been shortlisted and mine is one of them. Yay!!

The challenge was on vocal. The requirements were for a fiction story, with no prompt, genre or theme to stick to or requirement a story must meet.

25 grand prize winners will be selected to receive $5,000 each, and have their stories published in Vocal’s first ever book—a collection of short stories by Vocal creators, available for purchase and estimated for release in the spring of 2022. 1,000 runners up will be selected to receive a free year of Vocal+ membership.

We won’t find out until February 25th who the grand finalists are. This is my first success as a writer and I am over the moon with being shortlisted and winning a prize of a year’s free membership on vocal. Fingers crossed for a grand prize win 🙂

Love to you all, Katrina
