It’s Jolley time again! In August we’ll name the winner of the 2020 ABR Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize. It’s timely then to revisit last year’s winner: Sonja Dechian's poignant story 'The Point-Blank Murder', which was selected by judges Maxine Beneba Clarke, John Kinsella, and Beejay Silcox from a field of thirteen hundred and fifty entries. In today's episode, Sonja Dechian reads 'The Point-Blank Murder' in full.
And a heads-up for entrants and short fiction lovers. Our upcoming August 2020 issue will include this year’s three shortlisted stories. Join us for a Jolley Prize Zoom ceremony on August 13, when the shortlisted authors will read their stories and the overall winner will be announced. Registration details will be released shortly.
The ABR Podcast is released every Wednesday and features a range of literary highlights, such as reviews, poetry, fiction, interviews, and commentary.
