Costa Short Story Award

About The Short Story Award

This award is for a single, previously unpublished short story of up to 4,000 words by an author of 18 years or over.

The story must be written in English.

Only one entry per author will be accepted. Entry is online (see below).

Entry opens at 9am on Monday 16 July 2012 and closes at 4pm on Friday 7 September 2012.

The author need not have been previously published. Publishers/agents may submit entries on behalf of authors.

All entries will be judged anonymously (ie without the name of the author available to the judges).

A shortlist of six entries will be announced in November and the public will be asked to vote for their favourite.

The winner will be announced at the Costa Book Awards ceremony in late January 2013 and will receive a cheque for £3,500.

Two runners-up will each receive £750.
