VS Pritchett Short Story

Got an absolute cracker of a story, unpublished as yet? You've still time to send it here.

Prize of £1,000, and the winning entry will be published in Prospect magazine and the RSL Review. In addition to this, there will be an opportunity to appear at an RSL event with established short story writers in autumn 2010.

Entrants must be citizens of the UK or the Republic of Ireland, or have been resident for the past three years. Stories entered for the competition must not have been published previously, or broadcast in any other medium. Any story submitted should be between 2,000 and 5,000 words in length.

Fee: £5 towards administrative costs. Fees must be paid in sterling, by cheques drawn on a UK bank or by postal order. (Tricky for most Irish writers then)

Judges Tom Chatfield of Prospect and the authors Georgina Hammick
and Jacob Ross.

Deadline: 30 June 2010 - snailmail only so get a move on.
