One of those people is me!

Hey all, amazingly grateful to have made the longlist for the CBC Short Story Contest. Great to share that space with 30 other writers! Feel free to have a look, there’s a snippet of the story in here too:

I will say, this story is a bit unique. I’ve never written one quite like this before, but here’s to spreading your wings!

    1. Honoured just to be in that group… we’ll have to see what happens. I really like the story, to be honest. It’s a bit quirky, but it sticks in my head.

  1. You made my day with this, Trent. Congratulations! I can’t wait to read the whole thing. I hope you don’t mind but I shared you on Facebook with a whole lot of Winnipigean friends and family.

    1. Thanks Michelle! I didn’t get to the shortlist, so sad… it’s a pretty fair story, to be honest, but it’s unconventional. Thank you for your support, I really appreciate it! And I hope you post soon, it feels like it’s been a long long time.

  2. very nice!

    I think you are either the serious bearded guy or the smiley guy in the red flannel… is that the game?
    now I will go and read your story if it is here somewhere

      1. someone else will probably catch it in their special inspiration net and make a whole wide world out of it and you’ll have to burn inside KNOWING it was your seed….
        surrendered he watched as
        a time-lapse garden
        like ink in water
        flourished and spread
        in the air and in the purple waters of never never land
