Across the Ages Shortlist Announcement!

As you may have seen on our facebook page our call for submissions is out!

Our review team has been working tirelessly over the last few weeks to whittle down the many-many submissions we received to a list around twice the length that we can include in this year’s anthology. It is quite long for a ‘short’ list but we believe that the writers included here all deserve real recognition for getting to this stage before we decide who will be ultimately included.

The authors are listed in alphabetical order and if we are still considering multiple submissions from any one entrant they are included in separate rows (please bear in mind that, aside from short poems, we are unlikely to include more than one submission per author).

Congratulations if you have made it – it’s a real achievement to come so far. If you or your work is not listed, we hope that you are not too disheartened and will keep an eye out for any future calls for submissions.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their contributions and enthusiasm – it’s only going to get more exciting from here. Whether you are shortlisted or not, please buy the anthology when it is printed to support your fellow entrants. Questions and problems can be directed to Without further ado – here is the Across the Ages official shortlist!
