(Commonwealth, Annual, Short Story, Free)
The Commonwealth Short Story Prize brings stories from new and emerging voices, often from countries with little or no publishing infrastructure, to the attention of an international audience. You don’t need an agent, just an internet connection to submit your unpublished story of 2000-5000 words. Entry is always free and stories translated into English are also eligible.
The Commonwealth Short Story Prize is an annual competition of Commonwealth Writers, the cultural initiative of the Commonwealth Foundation. Each year, they select five winning writers from five different Commonwealth regions who share a total prize money of £15,000.
Deadline is usually November 1.
