The Prize offers:

  • The top 2-4 winning entries of the Prize for Short Fiction are declared the Winners, and share equally in the Prize pool of $1000 USD.
  • To recognize the abilities of the writers who do not place as a Winner, 10-20 entries are Shortlisted.
  • All entries are considered for publication.
  • Winning entries are published by The Letter Review online, and in the Winner Anthology.
  • Winning entries are also frequently submitted to further prestigious anthologies such as the Pushcart Prize.
  • Winners may request a professional recommendation / endorsement of their work in the form of a letter from Judges which they can send to agents, publishers etc.
  • Winners may also participate in an interview series, further raising their professional profile.

We are keen to encourage quality, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
