Diversity - Short Story Contest
DISCOVER - New writing from Turkey and the UK
Open call for short story writers
The British Council in Turkey aims to build a bridge between Turkish and UK writers, facilitate dialogue between literary professionals in both countries, and create a platform to showcase works by Turkish and British writers to new audiences.
To support this initiative, the British Council is launching a short story competition, on the theme of ‘diversity’, in partnership with two literary institutions: ITEF -Istanbul Tanpınar Literature Festival in Turkey, and Word Factory in the UK.
Winning stories will be published on a new British Council digital platform, alongside specially-commissioned stories by established authors from Turkey and the UK. All the stories will be translated into the other language (English/Turkish).
