The Bath Short Story Award Anthology 2023

There are nineteen exceptional stories in our tenth BSSA anthology, all shortlisted in our 2023 Award. Our judge, Farhana Shaikh, founder of Dahlia Publishing, said this about them:

“The writers shortlisted in this year’s Bath Short Story Award have understood this: that each component part must work in harmony, be in service to a story that must entertain… In my selection I have chosen the stories that resonated with me, the ones that having read them for a third or fourth time still surprise me in some way; where I found something beautiful, quiet, raw, that let me forget just for a moment that it was forecast to rain for the whole of next week. So, these are the stories that stuck with me, and didn’t quite let go. I hope you find as much joy in them as I do.”
