Food and Drink Short Story Prize #seanocarolan.com


THE MOGFORD PRIZE FOR FOOD & DRINK WRITING

An introduction from Jeremy Mogford:



I am lucky enough to have enjoyed a lifetime in the hospitality industry with my involvement with Browns Restaurants, Rules in London and my current Oxford collection of the Old Bank Hotel and Quod, the Old Parsonage and Gee’s.

The city of Oxford has been an historical centre for literary excellence, so it seemed the perfect idea to create and sponsor an annual short story prize which specifically included the subjects of food and/or drink within the plot.

The first prize of £7,500 was awarded in 2013 and the prize has steadily grown in popularity, attracting over 450 entries in 2015 and over 600 in 2016, with this year’s prize being increased to £10,000.
