Still time to enter the Mogford Short Story Prize

Mogford Prize graphicThere’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.

This year’s judges include author Bill Bryson, and English television cook, Lorraine Pascale.

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.

Good luck!
