Thomas Morris shortlisted for Edge Hill Short Story Prize
We Don’t Know What We’re Doing by UEA alumnus Thomas Morris has been shortlisted for this year’s Edge Hill Short Story Prize, which is worth £10,000 to the winner. Thomas (pictured) graduated from the Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) MA in 2013 and is currently the editor of the Irish literary journal The Stinging Fly. In 2014 he edited Dubliners 100, a centenary collection of new short stories by Irish writers based on James Joyce’s Dubliners. Earlier this year he was longlisted for the Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award. We Don’t Know What We’re Doing was published by Faber & Faber earlier this year, and is currently also shortlisted for the Wales Book of the Year Award. The Edge Hill Prize is awarded annually by Edge Hill University for excellence in a published single author short story collection, and the winner will be announced on 5th July. UEA alumni John Boyne (MA 1995) and Eliza Robertson (MA 2012; current PhD) were longlisted for the award for their collections Beneath the Earth and Wallflowers respectively.
