Graham Mort's 'Touch' wins Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2011

Date: 8 July 2011

Professor Graham Mort's Touch has won the Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2011. Now in its fifth year, this unique prize, worth £5,000, is the UK's only literary award that recognises a published collection of short stories. His name was unveiled at a special awards ceremony on 7th July at Blackwell's bookshop in Charing Cross, London. Presenting the first prize, judge Jeremy Dyson said: 'Graham Mort's collection is so vivid and evokes character in just a few lines... He won this prize for the sheer range of stories in his collection. I fell into so many places in one book and saw into so many lives, for me it was wonderful to read'.
