“The Bridport is a prize I have long coveted.  It was the first competition I plucked up the courage to enter as a new writer, and I have been chasing its prestigious name ever since.  I was thrilled, therefore, to be included in this year's anthology.  2017 was my most successful writing year to date, and being highly commended in the Bridport Prize played a big part in making it so”.

Rebecca F. John (UK) Highly Commended, short story competition 2017
