Wendy Erskine

Wendy Erskine’s short story collection Sweet Home (2018 Stinging Fly, 2019 Picador) won the Butler Literary Award, was shortlisted for the Edge Hill Prize and the Republic of Consciousness Prize, and was longlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize and the Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award for the story ‘Inakeen.’ Her stories and non-fiction have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and 4, and on RTE. Her new collection Dance Move will be published by Stinging Fly and Picador in February. 

 ‘The great thing about judging a competition like this is the diversity of voices, styles, genres, characters.  I come with very few preconceptions about what makes a good story, but I know that we will encounter exceptional work.’
