Event Details

The Short Story Prize 2019 is now open for submissions.

The Fish Short Story Prize was started in 1994, and has become an established event on the literary calendar. Previous judges, Roddy Doyle and Colum McCann are honorary patrons. (Past honorary patrons were Frank McCourt and Dermot Healy).

This year’s judge, acclaimed short story writer, novelist and honorary patron of this prize, Colum McCann, will select 10 short stories to be published in the 2020 Fish Anthology.

10 winners will be published in The Fish Anthology 2020 which will be launched during the West Cork Literary Festival (July 2020).

Publication in the annual Fish Anthology (Fish Books) has, for many authors, been a stepping-stone to a successful writing career. See Alumni.
