Publication wasn’t guaranteed as part of the deal for the winners of La Scala Studios’ first short story competition, but two people’s stories will now be published in a national magazine. This is an additional bonus to the £1500 in prizes already awarded.
The competition winners were announced at a prize presentation in July. Following this, the organisers were approached by Equestrian Plus (a national monthly magazine) who asked to see the winning stories in the Open and Yorkshire sections.
The result is that both winning stories will now be published.
Look out for The Final Chapter by Tereza Murphy, winner of the Open section, and Downstream by Richard Dixon, winner of the Yorkshire section.
Big cheers all round.
