It is a delight to us and indeed to every writer out there, that entries are now open for the 2018 edition of the commonwealth short story prize.
The Commonwealth short story prize which is opened to writers that have not been published or whose works have not been published, is an annual award aimed at the best piece of unpublished short fiction (2000 to 5000) words.
The award is categorized into regions, with the regional winners bagging £2,500 and the overall winner £5000.
The 2017 edition of the award was won by Ingrid Persaud, with her story, ‘the sweet sop’. The competition also saw Nigeria’s Akwaeze Emezi winning the African region, with her story, ‘who is like God’.
