Event Details

At Brick Lane Bookshop we’re excited to launch our first prize in 25 years!

In 2019, we’re sponsoring a short story competition, the inaugural Brick Lane Bookshop Short Story Prize, which is now open for submissions.

The winners and longlisted entrants’ stories will be published in the Brick Lane Bookshop Short Story Prize anthology, in autumn 2019.

Our aim is to celebrate short stories and to give emerging writers encouragement and a little financial space to write. We’re looking for new, exciting and diverse voices.

The prize is open to all UK residents for original short stories between 1000 and 5000 words.

Longlisted stories will be read and judged by our panel: Zoe Gilbert, Kit Caless and Emma Paterson.
