The Brighton Prize was founded to find brilliant short story writers. We offer cash prizes for new short and flash fiction.
We were founded in 2014 by Rattle Tales, acclaimed Brighton’s interactive short story night.
When we read a story, we want to be challenged and excited. If you’re a writer who can do that, we’d love to have your entry.
