It's been a wonderful period of judging, filled with laughs, thrills, and otherworldly experiences. But now, the waiting is over, and with the initial judging complete, we have our longlist. As always, the names of the authors aren't being included to preserve anonymity and prevent bias, but if you see the name of your piece below, then congratulations -- you've been longlisted! Feel free to shout about it on social media, but do be careful to keep the title of your work off until after the final announcement, just in case. Congratulations to all the longlisters, and for those who didn't make it, your feedback will be released after the winners announcement on the 16th of September. Good luck!
