EFG Sunday Times Short Story

This is apparently the world's biggest short story competition for a single story, so you'd better have a fantastic story to enter. All my stories are fantastic, of course.

Deadline: 27 September 2013.

The award aims to honour the finest writers of short stories in the UK and Ireland. It is open to authors with a previous record of publication in creative writing (so you're up against the full spectrum).

The story should be 6,000 words or under from an author writing fiction from anywhere in the world. They need to have been published in the UK or Ireland.

Prize: The winner will receive £30,000, and the five shortlisted writers will each receive £1,000 as well as having their work published online. A longlist will be announced in February 2014. The winner will be announced in April 2014.

Last year’s winner was Junot Diaz for his story ‘Miss Lora’.
