Stinging Fly short story competition

Stinging Fly Competition
2014 is sure to be another very busy year for the Fly. There are now just a few weeks left until the closing date for the Davy Byrnes Short Story Award. We have assembled an excellent panel of judges – Anne Enright, Yiyun Li and Jon McGregor – and we are very grateful to Redmond Doran of Davy Byrnes for the generous sponsorship, and to the office of Dublin UNESCO City of Literature for their support.

To remind you: there is €15,000 on offer for the best short story and five runner-up prizes of €1,000. The closing date is Monday February 3rd. The competition is open to Irish citizens and to writers who are resident or were born in the thirty-two counties. Entries must consist of a previously unpublished short story written in English. The maximum word count is 15,000 words, no minimum. Only one story per entrant and the entry fee is €10.
