National Short Story Prize

THE world's largest award for a short story will be unveiled at the Edinburgh International Book Festival this week. The winner of the National Short Story Prize will receive a windfall of 15,000 pounds with the runner-up pocketing 3,000 pounds. In what organisers hope will one day grow to the size and prominence of the Booker Prize, the competition aims to honour the country's finest writers of short stories so is only open to authors with a previous record of publication who are either UK nationals or residents
