About

The Brick Lane Bookshop Short Story Prize was launched in 2019. Our aim is to celebrate short stories and to give new or emerging writers the chance to be published, some encouragement and a little financial assistance to write. Each year we publish an anthology of the twelve longlisted stories in that year’s competition. We’re looking for new, exciting, and diverse voices.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.
Important: Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to residents of the UK.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
