In the current uncertain situation, we wanted to take the opportunity to reassure you that the 2020 Bristol Short Story Prize is continuing to run as normal and we are completely committed to this year’s competition. We are just over six weeks away from the entry deadline and invite you all to keep sending in your entries.
To protect the health of our team, including our readers and judges, and the wider community, we are putting in place contingency plans to carry out this year’s administration and judging processes with very minimal or no face-to-face contact from next week; as much work as possible will be done from home. This will not affect the entry process whatsoever, and our deadline, and longlist and shortlist announcement dates remain the same: midnight (BST) April 30th entry deadline, July 22nd for the longlist announcement and July 29th for the shortlist announcement.
As ever, you are more than welcome to email us with any questions you may have on firstname.lastname@example.org
Huge thanks for your continued support.
Best wishes from all at BSSP
