Graham Mort ‘Touch’ longlisted for Edge Hill Short Story Prize

Graham Mort’s book of Short Stories Touch, has been longlisted for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize. Touch, which was published by Seren in 2010, is on this year’s long-list with an impressive range of award-winning writers.

Touch includes a Bridport prize-winning story “The Prince” and was described by Novelist and Bridport judge Tracy Chevalier as “the writing is word-perfect.. with the story quietly remarking on how something out of the ordinary both does and doesn’t affect daily life. In particular, I was enchanted by deft descriptions of nature”.

Also on the longlist is Roshi Fernando, who features in Sing Sorrow Sorrow, an anthology also published by Seren.

Short-list to be announced in May and the winner will be announced at an award ceremony at Blackwell Bookshop, Charing Cross Road in July.
