Emma Seckel

Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Emma Seckel is currently completing her final year studying English at the University of St Andrews.

She won the 2016 Dan Hemingway Short Story Prize for 'The Wild Hunt', a work drawing on the Celtic legend of the sluagh. Emma primarily writes speculative fiction, attempting to paint a realistic portrait of the world, but with a twist towards the uncanny or the supernatural. Her work has been published in various anthologies, including New Shoots and Zetetic, and she is currently revising the manuscript of a novel. After graduating this year, Emma hopes to pursue writing professionally.

The 2016 judges were Oli Hazzard, Emma Jones and Sue Hemingway.
