The BBC National Short Story Award Shortlist: Eley Williams

The BBC National Short Story Award always highlights some absolute gems. This year there are three womxn on the shortlist: Jan Carson, Sarah Hall and Eley Williams. I had the pleasure of speaking to all three of them about their short stories. You can watch my interview with Jan Carson here and read my interview with Sarah Hall here.

Eley Williams is shortlisted for Scrimshaw. We discuss walruses, anxiety, tangents and humour.

The winner of the BBC National Short Story Award with Cambridge University will be announced on 6th October on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row. The shortlist anthology is out now from Comma Press and the stories are available to listen to on BBC Sounds.
