‘All The Poems Contained Within Will Mean Everything To Everyone’ by UEA alumnus Joe Dunthorne has been shortlisted for the 2019 Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award, the world’s richest prize for a single short story. The winner receives £30,000 and each of the six shortlistees £1,000. The co-sponsor Audible will also produce an audio anthology of the shortlisted stories. Joe (pictured) graduated from the UEA BA in English Literature with Creative Writing in 2004 and from the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) in 2005. His debut novel, Submarine, was translated into sixteen languages and adapted for film by Richard Ayoade. His second, Wild Abandon, won the Encore Award in 2012. His latest novel is The Adulterants. His short stories have been published in The Paris Review, the Guardian and McSweeney’s. A collection of his poems, O Positive, was published earlier this year by Faber & Faber.
