Anna Haldane only graduated from the MA Creative Writing programme at Edinburgh Napier University this autumn, but she's just won her second short story competition.

Having topped the 1000 Word Challenge two months ago, Anna is now the winner of the Dark Tales Contest for October with her short story The Silver Whisper, which you can read here.

She wrote the story while a student on the MA, working on it in our unique mentoring module Creative and Editorial Development. Now published online, the story will be collected in a future anthology by Dark Tales and Anna wins £100.

'I'm really pleased that this story has finally found a home,' she says. 'I worked really hard on it, tried lots of other places and publications. Just goes to show that perseverance does pay off!'
