HISSAC Highlands and Islands Short Story Association and Writing Competition

Winning Stories

It is always difficult to hone our short lists down to the final few, and as always personal taste comes into it. Which is another way of saying that all the authors listed below, in both Flash Fiction and Short Story sections, should be immensely proud.
And to everyone who has ever entered our competitions: we have been privileged, entertained and on occasion awed by your work.
May you keep on writing to the best of your ability, and beyond.



Winners will be announced on November 1st
