Welcome to the Bristol Short Story Prize – an annual international writing competition open to all published and unpublished, UK and non-UK based writers. We publish an annual anthology of the winning stories as well as presenting cash prizes.
The 2017 Bristol Short Story Prize longlist has been announced. Many congratulations to the 40 writers who have been selected. We will be announcing the shortlist on July 26th.
Tanner McSwain from Chicago won 2nd prize for his story, The Red Sea, and 3rd prize went to Berlin-based Kate Brown.
