The Cardiff Review Short Story Award, an annual prize for excellence in short fiction from new writers, is now open for submissions. The winning story will be published in a future issue of The Cardiff Review and awarded a cash prize of £150. We accept stories in English, between 1000 and 5000 words, from anywhere in the world; though each entrant may only submit once.
The Cardiff Review Short Story Award is open to new writers, which we define as individuals who have yet to begin a postgraduate/graduate programme, have not yet published a major piece of work and are not widely published in literary magazines. If you are unsure of whether you fall into this category or not, feel free to email us at email@example.com. The award is open to any young writer working in English.
