Nicely Folded Trois Pamphlet and Something Slim Novella Competitions – And the Winners Are….

I have to say that it has been quite exciting working my way through both of these competitions over the last month or so, and as ever it would have been quite easy to choose a lot more people to be published by The Hedgehog Press than intended. But unfortunately, it can’t be that way and in the end I have to make choices and so I am proud to say that the winners are…


Nicely Folded Paper Trois

The aim of our Nicely Folded paper Competitions is always to find Collections of Poetry to be published by Hedgehog. These can be first collections, or something a little bigger and to date it has proven to be our most successful.

This time I am proud to say that we have Three Collections to be published, from:

                  1. Gavin Bourke
                  2. Pratibha Castle, and
                  3. Peter A. Kelly

All of the collections should be published in 2020 and I would like to congratulate all three of the winners.


Something Slim : A Novella Competition

This, the first competition for writers of Prose that we have had at Hedgehog is something a little special. We are aiming to publish a single Novella each year, and so in judging this I have to say that I felt a little more pressure than normal.

I genuinely didn’t have a clue how many entries we would receive, but of far more importance was the quality and I could have (again) chosen so many, but in the end resources mean that there could only be one.

So I am proud, pleased and rather stunned to be able to announce, that the first winner of our ‘Something Slim’ competition, is

J.P. Jackson

for his beautifully constructed and not a little surreal, ‘Misha’ which we are aiming to publish during 2020.

Thank you again to everybody who has entered the competitions and congratulations to Gavin, Pratibha, Peter and J.P.
