Four good things about the Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award 2014 Long List which was announced today:
- International writers on the reading panel – including the fabulous talents of Elif Shafak and Sarah Hall
- Blind reading made it completely democratic: everyone was equal at the reading stage
- A truly international long list; reasonably balanced along gender and professionalism: male/female; professional/beginning writers
- Jenni Fagan is on it [yay]
Full list is up on the Book Trust Website.
