We’ve enjoyed spending several frosty mornings reading the wonderful stories longlisted for our international, #100Words story competition inspired by a beautiful winter scene.
With so many intriguing narratives on the list, the judging has been tough, but we’ve finally agreed the shortlist of stories below.
Congratulations to the 10 writers who made the list!
The #100Words shortlist
- Great Grey
- Happy Holidays
- Neighbourhood Watch
- No Two Snowflakes are the Same
- Only Blue Light Survives a Long Travel Path
- The Forgotten Cold
- The Homecoming
- The Perfect Place
- The Shortest Day of the Year
What happens next?
Judge, Amanda Saint, now has the unenviable task of picking the winners from the shortlist. It’s going to be tough to decide!
We’ll be publishing all the shortlisted stories here on Lightbox Originals on 7th December and will be announcing the winners at the same time.
Our next international, #100Words story competition will be coming in spring 2021 and will be inspired by another beautiful image.
In the meantime, why not visit our gallery of writing prompts and let it inspire new stories this winter? We add fresh inspiration regularly.
