Every year, the THRESHOLDS International Short Fiction Feature Writing Competition invites essays from around the world that celebrate the short story form.

We ask that entries either recommend a short story, a collection or an anthology, or profile the life and writing of a short story author, and that they do not exceed 2,000 words. Judged anonymously, the Competition currently awards the winning writer £500, with two runner-up prizes of £100 each.

* The 2017 Feature Writing Competition results will be published in April*
