Tramore: My Laptop


I’m delighted to hear that Dr Fiona Ennis (pictured), lecturer at WIT’s School of Humanities has been shortlisted for the 2020 Bristol Short Story Prize.

Fiona is shortlisted alongside some pretty impressive heavy-weights such as American author, Tehila Lieberman and Kenyan writer, Makena Onjerika.

Dr Ennis has previously won the national Molly Keane Creative Writing Award 2019. Her short fiction has been published in Sonder and will feature in the forthcoming Leicester Writes Anthology, published by Dahlia Books. Her poetry has been published in The Honest Ulsterman.

The Bristol Short Story Prize is an international award for short-story writers. This year, the competition received over 2,700 entries from all over the world.

Dr Ennis said: “I’m thrilled to be shortlisted for this award! It’s so encouraging to feature on a list with such talented writers.”

The winner will be announced this October and the shortlisted stories will be published in an anthology by Tangent Books.
