Commonwealth Short Story Prize 2021 for Young Writers

Posted in on September 4, 2020

Description :

The Commonwealth Short Story Prize started in 2012 with the launch of Commonwealth Writers. Free to enter and with a global reach across five continents, the Prize seeks out talented writers and brings stories from new and emerging voices to an international audience. Stories often come from countries with little or no publishing infrastructure and from places that are marked by geographical, geopolitical, or economic isolation.

Entries are now invited from young and ambitious writers for the 2021 Commonwealth Short Story Prize.

The Commonwealth Short Story Prize is awarded for the best piece of unpublished short fiction (2,000–5,000 words). Regional winners each receive £2,500 and the overall winner receives £5,000.

As well as English, stories are accepted in the Bengali, Chinese, French, Greek, Kiswahili, Malay, Portuguese, Samoan, Tamil and Turkish languages. Translated entries from any language into English are also eligible.

The competition is free to enter and open to any citizen of a Commonwealth country who is aged 18 and over.

The 2021 Commonwealth Short Story Prize is open for online entries from until 1 November 2020.
