    ‘Eleven Stories 2018’ PDF download

    Eleven Stories 2018 collects the shortlist from our first short fiction prize and is available for a limited period in pdf format as a response to the lockdown measures put in place by the Spanish government.

    All sales will be shared between Desperate Literature and the authors.

    ->ONLY €2.20 or €3.50 for both the 2018 and 2019 editions AVAILABLE HERE<-

    PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR COPYRIGHT REASONS WE HAVE REMOVED JOANNA WALSH'S SHORTLISTED STORY FROM THE 2018 PDF.

    Here's what the magnificent Eley Williams has to say about our selection:

    ‘This brilliant shortlist celebrates everything that I value in literature — its demands, its affirmations, its possibilities. Linguistically playful, narratively deft: each story demonstrated the ways in which writing’s verve can thrill in the vein and trill on the ear. It was incredibly difficult to find winners: all of the writers’ entries were assured in their teetering, fiery in their freshness and bold in their complexity and should be congratulated and thanked.’
