Event Details

The competition is organized by The Moth, an international arts and literature magazine, based in Ireland. The competition is open to anyone over the age of 16.

The Moth Short Story Prize is an international prize, open to anyone from anywhere in the world as long as their story is original and previously unpublished. The winners are chosen by a single judge each year, who reads the stories anonymously.

You can enter as many stories as you like.

There is a word limit of 3,000. Entries must be in English. Entries must be entirely the work of the entrant and must never have been published, self-published, published online or broadcast.

The entry fee is 15 € per story.

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.
