Founded by Rattle Tales in 2014, The Brighton Prize continues to look out for inventive new writing. This year submission is no exception. The Brighton Prize wants short stories that connect on the stage the same way they connect on paper – stories that are quite simple yet beaming with inventiveness.
Submissions to The Brighton Prize are in two categories, the short story category (1000-2000 words) and the flash fiction category (between 350 words). The overall winner in the short story category goes with a cash prize of £1000. Two short story runners up also get £100 each. The overall winner for the flash fiction category goes with a cash prize of £100. Two flash fiction runners up also get £50 each. All shortlisted stories will be published in the Brighton Prize anthology in 2018.
