Call for Submissions – BBC Short Story Award

For  the first time since it launched in 2006, the BBC Short Story  Award will see stories from home and abroad going head-to-head for the  £15,000 cheque for first place. For one year only authors from across  the globe will be eligible to enter alongside UK practitioners.

The winning story in 2011 was ‘The Dead Roads, by DW Wilson, who said ‘The BBC short story prize couldn’t have come at a better time in my career; it was the push I needed to get my work noticed. More than that, though, it was the little things that tagged along that made the whole experience so rewarding: hearing my story read on radio, pats on the back from authors whose work I’ve read and admired; and that very rare and quintessential gift for a writer – reassurance that we might just be doing something right.’
