The Moth Short Story Prize 2016 is now calling for entries.
This year’s judge – John Boyne – is the author of a collection of short stories, nine novels for adults and five for younger readers, including The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, a New York Times no. 1 Bestseller that has sold over 6 million copies.
The Prize is for a single unpublished story of no more than 6,000 words. The competition is open to anyone, and you can enter as many stories as you like.
Worldwide copyright of each entry remains with the author, but The Moth will have the unrestricted right to publish the winning stories in the autumn 2016 issue and any relevant promotional material.
The closing date for entries is 30 June 2016.
