      International Creative Writing Competition for Short Stories and Poems

      The Bridport Prize 2009 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).

      The Bridport is also known as a tremendous literary stepping stone - the first
      step in 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      Anyone can enter - so long as the work is previously unpublished.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 or £6 per poem and the closing date is 30th June 2009. 

      Each year the prize is judged by well known writers - this year we are delighted to have

      Ali Smith judging short stories and Jackie Kay judging poetry 


      The 2008 anthology of winning entries is available for just £12 or £15 overseas 
      (including postage and packing)
      2006 & 2007 anthologies available for £7 or £10 overseas (limited amount)
