We're delighted to announce that the winner of the 2014 Dan Hemingway Short Story Prize at the University of St Andrews, for her short story 'Childbearing', is Diana Adachukwu Igwegbu.

Diana Adachukwu Igwegbu is in her second year at St Andrews studying Geology, and she's clearly a talented writer too. Her story came about after a phone call to her paternal grandmother that made her think about family relationships and language barriers. This year's judges Reif Larsen, Ruth Thomas and Sue Hemingway were unanimous in choosing 'Childbearing' as the winner from a record field of 41 entries for the prize.

Diana's family home is in Aberdeen, where Sue called her on Christmas morning to give her the good news. Many congratulations to Diana.
