Desperate Literature Short Fiction Prize
Awarded for an original work of short fiction under 2000 words
The aim of the Desperate Literature Short Fiction Prize is both to celebrate the best of new short fiction and to give winners the most visibility possible for their writing. That’s why we’ve teamed up with fourteen different literary and artistic institutions to offer not only a cash prize and writing retreats but to ensure that all our shortlisters have the opportunity to be published in multiple print and online journals, have their work put in front of literary agents and perform in multiple countries.
Last year we produced the beautiful booklet Eleven Stories 2019, which you can see below.
This year we’ve just added more to the kitty.
The Desperate Literature Short Fiction Prize adheres to CLMP’s Contest Code of Ethics
