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!

Very appreciated, Matticus. Wish me luck!
Congratulations, Trent!!! 😀 <3
Appreciated, Linda. Great to hear from you.
Seriously cool, well done!
Thank you, Elyse!
Congratulations, TL. I feel sorry for those other writers. You’re the one to beat, in my opinion.
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.
Very cool, congrats!
Congratulations to you! I can’t think of anybody more deserving of this honor and to go even further. Good luck!
Thank you Mark!
Well done me old mucker. Fair play to ya.
By the way, nothing is a bit unique. Unique is an absolute. Something is either unique or it isn’t
Duncan. You are unique.
I’ll take that to be a compliment. 🙂
You know it is.
Are you giving into your natural dog-trending tendencies???
Congrats to you!
Thank you! I’m just happy people read my stuff.
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.
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.
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
I was wrong! you are the cutie in the corner… I dared not believe…
Poet, you’re making me blush.
you blush then I blush
Unfortunately the story in full is not there! And I didn’t move further in the contest, so the piece is consigned to the winds.
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
that was a minuscule excerpt……
Yes, they only publish the full thing if you’re shortlisted, which alas I was not.
which is entirely hard to comprehend in my humble opinion…
Ah, I missed this!
Where’s the whole story? I only get a snippet in the article.
I didn’t get shortlisted and haven’t posted the full story. I kind of just forgot about it. Maybe I should dig it up.
