Hi all, really privileged to have made the short story prize longlist for the CBC contest. Just released today: 32 people have been shortlisted out of about 2,400 submissions. This is actually the second year straight I’ve been longlisted in this contest!
If you’re up for it, have a look here and you can see the first few lines of the story (they don’t reveal the whole story):
Keep fingers crossed, it would be wonderful to make the shortlist!

Congrats man, that’s awesome!
Appreciate it, thank you so much!
Good luck to you. I think I remember this tale, or at least the names EEEE and Om-LLLL. I hope you make the short list.
Older version of a story, yes. I repainted it and sent it into the world. it would be lovely to make the short list, I think it’s a good story. Thank you, my friend.
Congrats to you, Trent Lewin. It is time for Trent Lewin to win the whole damn thing!!!!!
That would be a dream… let’s see if the story measures up to all the others that made the longlist!
Congratulations. You are seriously one of the most creative voices I have come across so I can’t imagine them NOT shortlisting you.
Thanks dude… it’s all up to the judges! I think the story is really good, and it made me really have a visceral reaction. Hope everyone gets to have a look at it on the shortlist!
I do hope we get to read it in the near future. Congratulations! Everything is crossed … even my eyes.
Thanks Michelle, I hope you get to see it on CBC! Making the shortlist would be amazing. Appreciate your well wishes.
Congratulations! And you actually made their short list a few years ago, if I remember correctly?
Thanks X. Yah I did, that was a few years ago. That feels like a totally different writer. Don’t even remember the guy. I think he was a bit of a chump, but boy was he happy to be on that shortlist. It made a world of difference. But if I managed that again, now, it would be something else. We’ll see.
Awesome. Rock on.
Thank you! But I lost. Didn’t make the shortlist, so I’m bummed. But I’ll get over it and keep writing. I have great things coming up, I think.
That’s the spirit. The possibilities are endless.
