Congratulations to all the incredible writers who have been shortlisted for the FUTURES story anthology. And, thank you to everyone who submitted for trusting us with your work. We were so inspired reading the hundreds of submissions and really struggled to narrow the field. But we have ended up with a diverse and impressive range of stories exploring both near and far futures. We can’t wait to announce the prize winners and bring you the anthology, but for now, here is the list of shortlisted writers!
