The Newcomer Prize for Short Stories
We're always working to discover new authors and new stories to publish alongside our regular contributors. The Newcomer Prize is part of this: it's a short story writing competition only open to authors who have not been previously published by The Fiction Desk, and who have not yet published a novel or collection of short stories on paper.
We welcome the same range of literary and crossover genre fiction to the Newcomer Prize that we feature in the pages of our anthologies. If you've not yet read us, it's worth picking up one or two of our previous volumes to see what we publish.
How to Enter
The 2018 edition of the Newcomer Prize is now closed. The results were announced on our website here, and the winners appeared in our anthology And Nothing Remains. Keep an eye on our website for news of our writing competitions for 2019.
