Two current UEA students have been shortlisted for the 2022 White Review Short Story Prize, Jekwu Anyaegbuna for ‘The Professor of Loss’ and Leeor Ohayon for ‘Ruins’. Jekwu (pictured) graduated from the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) in 2019 as that year’s recipient of the Miles Morland Scholarship and is currently undertaking a fully-funded PhD in Creative and Critical Writing. He was awarded a fellowship by the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation for Creative Writing and was the winner of the Commonwealth Short Story Prize for Africa. His writing has appeared in Granta, Ambit, Magma, The Massachusetts Review, Transition and Prairie Schooner. Leeor is a current student on the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) and was recently selected for the 2022-23 London Library Emerging Writers Programme, which offers one year’s free membership of the library, writing development masterclasses and networking opportunities. His story ‘Gahnun on Shabbat’ was the winner of the 2021 Royal Society of Literature’s V.S Pritchett Prize and published in Prospect Magazine and the RSL Review. In 2021 he also won the Leicester Writes Short Story Prize and was shortlisted for the Brick Lane Bookshop Short Story Prize. The winner of the White Review Prize will be announced in October.
