The BBC's short story prize is judged blind (meaning no names or any other information are attached to the manuscript).
For the fifth time, all the finalists are women.
@cosine Women are currently dominating literary fiction. Any topic anyone stereotypically thinks a man would write, women are currently writing. Women are putting out muscular and lyrical prose. Women are writing stereotypical dad books.
And aside from quality, no. I don’t think you can tell.
@cosine I'd repeat myself to correct your ridiculous misreading, but I don't like you. Knowledge is power. Happy to see you struggle.
I'm not interested in your experience. You are incurious, dull, and unpleasant. While I am happy to see you struggle, the novelty has worn off.
You are dismissed.
General Communism, writing, and shitposts.
