The Bridport Prize 2010 website is now open for entries!

The Bridport Prize is the richest open writing competition in the English language – with £5000 first prize for a short story (of up to 5000 words); and £5000 first prize for a poem (of up to 42 lines).

This year we are delighted to launch a new category of Flash Fiction – there’s £1,000 to be won for the best short, short story of under 250 words.

The Bridport is also known as a tremendous literary stepping stone – the first step n the careers of writers such as: Kate Atkinson, Tobias Hill, Carol Ann Duffy and Helen Dunmore.

Anyone can enter – so long as the work is previously unpublished. It costs £7 per story, £6 per poem or £5 per flash fiction and the closing date is 30th June 2010.

Each year the prize is judged by well known writers – this year we are delighted to have Zoe  Heller judging short stories and Michael Laskey judging poetry.

The 2009 anthology of winning entries is available for just £12 or £15 overseas (including postage and packing). The 2008 and 2007 anthologies are available in limited numbers for £7 and £5 (£10 and £8 overseas)
