Last, but not least, a heartfelt thank you to all those not listed here. If your username wasn't in this list it certainly doesn't mean we haven't enjoyed and appreciated everything you've put into this contest. In fact, our judges had a lot of positive feedback they've shared -- they really do get into your story's heart.

The way the contest works means we have to draw lines somewhere though, which subsequently means saying farewell to a number of entries. Getting to the Short List is tough, but the fact you've made it this far and written a 20,000(+) word novella that made it to the Long List says something. It's something to be proud of -- an extra milestone in your writing journey -- and hopefully we'll have the privilege of reading more of your work in future contests, too.
