Blogging the Caine Prize, 2013

Blogging the Caine Prize, 2013 is back. For the last two years, Aaron Bady has been organising a conversation between a group of bloggers/writers on the Caine Prize shortlisted stories.  From next week until end of June, on a weekly basis this year's stories will be read, reviewed and posted. 

I will be taking part again this year and I'm super excited it's back. I had so much fun doing it last year. As someone who wasn't the greatest fan of short stories (I am slowly getting into them), it was a great way for me to get into them. It was also nice reading the other co-bloggers views on the stories. You can read more about it on The New Inquiry, and here's the schedule, with links to the short stories:

Who will be reading with us? You can also join the conversation on twitter (#caineprize). Oh and you can email Aaron Brady if you would like to take part.


  1. I'll be reading with you :)

    1. Great! Can't wait to start reading them next week.

  2. wow..that's totally cool -)
    what do you mean by who will be reading with us?

    1. Oh! there's a number of other bloggers, who will also be reading and reviewing the Caine Prize at the same time. We just share our thoughts on the stories once a week. I will link to the other bloggers reviews at the end of mine. If you want to join you can send an email to Aaron Brady (
