The Short Review

shining the spotlight on short story collections

Cork City – Frank O’Connor Short Story Award Longlist

Here’s the longlist of short story collections for the 2010 Cork City – Frank O’Connor Short Story Award, now in its sixth year. Say the organisers:

“The longlist is almost evenly split between women and men this year with 28 men and 26 women. The strength of the short story in the United States is reflected by that country’s overwhelming number of 21 longlistees. This year is also noted for a surge of entries from Asia, accounting for one fifth of all titles. There are three Irish nominees this year including Nuala Ni Chonchuir, the first author to be longlisted for the third time.”

Congratulations indeed to Nuala, who is a Short Review reviewer as well as a reviewee! We have reviewed a number of these collections already, links provided. The shortlist will be announced on July 6th.
