There’s still a few weeks left to enter the Sixth Annual Mogford Food & Drink Short Story Prize. The prize is worth £10,000, the contest is open to anyone of any nationality (over the age of 18), stories must be no more than 2,500 words long, and the closing date is 3 January 2018 (at 12 noon, GMT). There’s one other small consideration:
“Food and drink must be at the heart of the winning tale. Your short story could, for instance, be about crime or intrigue; about a chance meeting over a drink; a life-changing conversation over dinner; or perhaps the details of a relationship explored through food or drink.”
Full terms and conditions are here.
You’ll find the last five winners here. I’ve only read last year’s so far: “Bait” by Nicky Winder. It’s a doozy!
Entries can be made online, and each entry costs £10.
