Short Story Winner announced! #Manchester #climate

Jennie Bailey has won the first Manchester Climate Monthly short story contest, with a work entitled Veins that Carried Blood and Water.   She told MCFly “It’s still taking a while to sink in. I’m super chuffed to have won. Having spent nine years growing up near a canal (the Bridgewater) I wanted to include Manchester’s waterways. loved writing that story and I’m so happy that it was chosen as the winning entry.”

She will be given her £200 prize at a brief ceremony next Friday by one of the two judges of the contest – novelist Liz Jensen.

The two runners-up, Sarah Jasmon and Daniel Carpenter will also receive prizes.  Their short stories will appear on the MCFly website next week.

Thanks so much to everyone who entered, both for entering and also their patience with the delay in announcing the winners (which was not the fault of either judge – Liz Jensen or Professor Mark Maslin of University College London).

The short story contest may return next year. If it does, it will be bigger, better organised and better publicised!
