The Bristol Short Story Prize aims to publish great short stories and promote the stories and writers as much as possible.
Discovering previously unpublished writers is central to our aims and we are absolutely committed to celebrating the short story genre and making it accessible and available to as wide an audience as we can. The Bristol Short Story Prize was founded by the editors of the quarterly cultural magazine Bristol Review of Books in 2007.
There is an entry fee of £8 for each story submitted to the competition.
• 1st prize: £1,000
• 2nd prize: £700
• 3rd prize: £400
• Each of the 17 remaining shortlisted writers will receive £100.
Each of the 2016 Bristol Short Story Prize shortlisted authors will receive 2 free copies of the paperback version of Bristol Short Story Prize Anthology Volume 9 and will be able to purchase further copies at a discount of 50%.
