An Unkindness of Ravens: The Raven Contest longlist

What’s unkind about the Raven Short Story Contest?  Why, making us choose, of course!  It’s never easy deciding which stories will make the cut.  Sometimes it’s like choosing between apples and automobiles: both are useful, and many are beautiful, but I wouldn’t want to ride in one or eat the other.

But choose we must.  And so here are the authors on the longlist, alphabetically by first name:

  1. Adam Golub
  2. Amanda Truscott
  3. Charity Tahmaseb
  4. Charlene Kwiatkowski
  5. Claire Lawrence
  6. Darshan Thind
  7. David Perlmutter
  8. David Thompson
  9. Janice P Egry
  10. Jeannine Manji
  11. Jerico Espinas
  12. Joanna Koch
  13. Judyth Emanuel
  14. Kat McNichol
  15. Kelly Madden
  16. Kerry Craven
  17. KT Wagner
  18. Lisa Voisin
  19. Margaret Jameson
  20. Maria Neuda
  21. Mark Fabiano
  22. Mark Wagstaff
  23. Megan Clancy
  24. Mike Twist
  25. Nancy Christie
  26. Nancy Ludmerer
  27. Pat Flewwelling
  28. Richard Arbib
  29. Rose Divecha
  30. Soramimi Hanarejima
  31. Tammy Breitweiser

Yes, 31 is a strange number for a longlist.  Remember what we said about how hard it is to make a cut?  Sometimes we just make the list a little longer to put off the pain.

So thank you writers for being so unkind to us, and congratulations on winning us over this far with your words.  The shortlist will be published soon!
