Myself and Vincent McDonnell have concluded our adjudication of the entries received for The Mitchelstown Short Story Prize and the short list of 10 stories has been passed on to the final judge, John MacKenna. The organisers expect to publish the name of the winner, and the 5 runners up, on or before 31st March 2009.

The winner will receive the Cork County Council Library Services Prize of €2,500 and a laptop, sponsored by The Mouse Pad, Mitchelstown.

It's a brilliant prize, IMO. One of the better ones.

One pitfall of adjudicating - disappointing people. Sorry Fox Girl...but you know, maybe your story was in my 'Good stories' pile. Never give up!
