Shortlist Announcement

Hello dear readers!

***We interrupt your regular scheduled updates of Koyal interviews to announce some exciting news***

Last Monday, the Fox and Windmills writing competition longlist was published and we were delighted to see not one, but two Koyals had made the cut!

Both Sujana Crawford for poetry, and Sarah M Jasat for prose, have been selected in the list of pieces. The longlist will be further shortened to select six pieces of each genre to go into the first Foxes and Windmill anthology, set to launch next year. Authors will be published along side work by Saima Mir, award-winning writer and author of The Khan. Sairish Hussain, author of the Costa shortlisted debut novel The Family Tree and award-winning poet Zaffar Kunial!


What is more amazing is that the shortlist has been announced and both Sujana and Sarah got through!


Congratulations to both. We can’t wait to read your entries in the anthology that will be published in 2023. Watch this space for more information as and when things develop!
