The Royal Society of Literature is delighted to announce the nineteenth V.S. Pritchett Short Story Prize. This prize for the best unpublished short story of the year was founded by the RSL at the beginning of the new millennium to commemorate the centenary of an author widely regarded as the finest English short-story writer of the 20th century, and to preserve a tradition encompassing Pritchett’s warmth of feeling and mastery of narrative.


Stories must be written in English and between 2,000 and 4,000 words. Entrants must be resident in the UK, Republic of Ireland or the Commonwealth.


This year’s judges are:

  • Tibor Fischer
  • Irenosen Okojie
  • Leone Ross.
