I am very excited to announce that Penstricken: Collected Stories has scooped up its first award: the N.K. Prentices Flash Fiction Prize!
As I’m sure you all know, the N.K. Prentices Award recognises the crème de la crème of tiny short stories and is awarded but once a year on the first day of April by the renowned author, N.K. Prentices himself.
Check out what the judges had to say about Penstricken: Collected Stories.
Penstricken: Collected Stories is quite simply the most wonderful flash fiction anthology I’ve read in years.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐N.K. Prentices – Judge
Everybody should read Penstricken: Collected Stories. It is an absolute triumph.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Nick R. Spent – Judge
It’s short enough to read while you’re on the loo but apart from that I don’t see what all the fuss is about.
⭐E.N. Pentricks – Judge (the inevitable grumpy one)
As I’m sure you’re all aware, the N.K. Prentices award isn’t just prestigious. It also comes with a very generous cash prize of £50,000,000 so I’ll be buying a nice tropical island where I’ll while away the rest of my life writing more award winning fiction from the balcony overlooking my private pool!
I will, of course, be returning briefly to help judge next year’s competition so make sure you click here to get your entries in before next April.
Until then! 😎
