Bringing characters and worlds to life, letting them breathe and grow until they’re something entirely new and so different from what I first imagined
An interview with Briony Cameron, shortlisted for the 2021 Fiction Prize with The Ballad of Jacquotte Delahaye.
As for entering the Fiction Prize, what do you have to lose? That’s what I told myself when I entered. You never know unless you try. I try to think of every submission as an achievement, and even a rejection should be considered an achievement. Entering prizes can be really beneficial to your writing, especially giving yourself a deadline and something to work towards. Just don’t count yourself out before you’ve even tried.
