Twenty Lucky Winners Will Have the Chance to Win a Year's Subscription to Audible
While we would encourage everyone to download the audiobook, available here, as a matter of course, some may wish to hesitate before signing up and purchasing. This is because the kind people at Audible are giving twenty lucky winners the chance to listen to the audiobook - along with any other of Audible's publications - for free.
Audible – the world’s leading provider of spoken word entertainment - has produced an exclusive audio anthology of the shortlisted stories, which was released on Friday 13th September at www.audible.co.uk. This is the first time that the shortlist has ever been available in audio, ensuring that the shortlisted stories will reach millions of new listeners, and in a dynamic new way.
Narrators for The Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award Shortlist Collection 2019 include Stephen Hogan ('A Partial List Of The Saved'), Damian Lynch ('All The Poems Contained Within Will Mean Everything To Everyone'), Nicholas Osmond ('Comme'), Melanie McHugh ('In Silhouette'), Patrick Moy ('The Coast Of Leitrim') and Peter Marinker ('What Can You Do With A General').
To have your chance to win, please send an email to email@example.com by Friday 11th October, with 'competition entry' as the subject line. The body of the email should contain your full name address, phone number, and the answer to the following question:
We have just concluded the Award's first decade with the announcement of its tenth winner, Danielle McLaughlin. But who won in the Award's very first year?
