The Commonwealth Short Story Prize started in 2012 with the launch of Commonwealth Writers. Free to enter and with a global reach across five continents, the Prize seeks out talented writers and brings stories from new and emerging voices to an international audience.

Stories often come from countries with little or no publishing infrastructure and from places that are marked by geographical, geopolitical or economic isolation. The Prize now attracts between 6,000 and 7,000 entries each year from almost all of the 54 countries of the Commonwealth. It is awarded for the best piece of unpublished short fiction.

Commonwealth Writers is the cultural initiative of the Commonwealth Foundation. They inspire and connect writers and storytellers across the world, bringing personal stories to a global audience.

Benefits

  • Each regional winner receives ยฃ2,500, and their story is published online onย Granta, the magazine of new writing.
  • One of the regional winners is then selected as the overall winner, who receives ยฃ5,000 โ€“ one of the highest amounts for an international prize for unpublished short stories.
