The Moth International Short Story Prize 2015

Short Story Ireland

cover-15The annual Moth International Short Story Prize is back and accepting entries until the closing date of June 30th, 2015. There’s some great prizes for this competition including €3,000 for the winner and a 2nd prize of a writing retreat at Circle of Misse. The three winning stories will also feature in the autumn 2015 issue of The Moth.

The word limit for this competition is up to a maximum of 6,000 words which is wonderful for those writers whose stories don’t fit neatly into the usual 2,000 to 3,000 limits of these types of competitions.

The entry fee is €12 per story and the competition will be judges by Donal Ryan, author of The Spinning Heart.

You can read “Emily” by Mandy Beaumont, the winning entry from last year’s competition here.
