Kate Clanchy Awarded the Prestigious BBC National Short Story Award

An award-winning poet has won the prestigious BBC National Short Story Award with her second attempt at a short story.

Kate Clanchy, who has worked primarily as a teacher and as Poet in Residence for the Red Cross, beat an exceptional shortlist which included past Orange Prize winners Lionel Shriver and Naomi Alderman, and BAFTA-nominated author Jane Rogers.

The story, entitled The Not-Dead and The Saved is a haunting story of parental love and sacrifice set in a hospital ward. The story of a mother and child, whose relationship is conducted against a background of hospital visits, transplants and tumours, was praised by the judges for its rich lyricism and deeply affecting style.

Sara Maitland, who was shortlisted for her story Moss Witch, was awarded as runner-up. Sara is a distinguished short-story author who has had six collections published.

More than 600 entries were received for this year’s award which is open to authors who have had some history of publication and who are UK residents.
