Event Details

The International Bath Short Story Award is organised by Jude Higgins, Jane Riekemann and Anna Schlesinger. Launched in 2012, it has rapidly become established as one of the prominent short story competitions in the UK receiving over a thousand world-wide entries each year.

Jude, Anna and Jane all have a passion for short fiction and have been meeting together as a writing group to workshop their own writing since 2002. They are keen to promote the short story form by means of the yearly award and occasional events and champion short story writers whenever they can on social media and elsewhere.

The seventh international Bath Short Story Award is now open for entries and closes at midnight BST, 15th April 2019. This year the short list judge is literary agent, Samuel Hodder, from Blake Friedmann Literary Agency.

Prizes for the 2019 Award are: £1200 first prize, £300 second prize, £100 third prize, £100 for the Acorn Award (for an unpublished writer), £50 for the local prize.
