The Brighton Prize



This is a new annual short story prize run by Rattle Tales, Brighton’s interactive live literature night. They are looking for fresh, interesting, new writing that will keep the attention of a live audience and get them talking. The short stories must be between 1000 and 2000 words long and there is no restriction on subject or genre.Why not give it a bash.

The Brighton Prize began with the aim of finding exciting, challenging new writers and to bring their work to the Brighton stage. The first prize is worth £400 and the two runners up are £50 each. The shortlist will be judged by two Brighton based authors. Bethan Roberts, author of The Pools, The Good Plain Cook, and Mother Island (out June 2014) and Laura Lockington, author of The Cornish Affair, Cupboard Love and Stargazy Pie. All three finalists will be invited to read their stories at Rattles Tales’s Brighton Festival Fringe show on May 14th. In addition the top ten shortlist will be offered publication in their anthology. The closing date is 1st April 2014 and the entry fee is £6. Visitwww.brightonprize.com for more details.
