Episode 7: A Nightmare on George Street 4 – Longlist Announcement

Tune in at 1:19 to hear the announcement of our longlisted authors! We’re so excited to share this list with you:

Our top five entries are (listed alphabetically by last name):

👽 “Identity Theft” by Melissa Bishop
🎃 “Harvest” by Emily Brent
💅 “Living Dead Girl” by Krysta Fitzpatrick
☠️ “The Cremation of the WB” by Joshua Goudie
👻 “Talitha George” by Tracy Kreuzberg

In 2021, WANL partnered with Admiralty House Communications Museum and the Association for the Arts in Mount Pearl for this event, which has allowed us not only to offer bigger prizes, but also gave us a wonderfully spooky location to record our author readings!

And the prizes are…
🥇 1st Place: $350
🥈 2nd Place: $250
🥉 3rd Place: $150

Contestants were welcome to submit flash fiction original material of any genre to a maximum of 1,000 words. Writing format was open to all: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, monologues, etc.

Our five longlisted authors have recorded readings of their submissions with our go-to guy for all things spooky and altogether kooky, Mike Hickey.
We will be releasing these filmed readings for viewers to vote for their favourite – voting opens this week, and will end on October 26, so cast your vote ASAP! (Voting platform to be released soon!)

Thanks to our jury for helping us determine our longlist – we had 30+ submissions to send their way! The 2021 jury consisted of:

• Tracey Waddleton, Author of Send More Tourists… the Last Ones Were Delicious
“This book is like reaching into a cookie jar and finding a Barbie head.”

• Brad Dunne, Author of After Dark Vapours and The Gut:

“His ability to craft pure terror and suspense is brilliantly fused with heartbreaking emotion and real-life feelings leave the reader turning the page all the way to the end.”

• Liz Solo, Author of Phreak
“A sweeping crusty feat of biting, Nostradamic wisdom. A dirty mirror held up with tough love.”
