The 2016 Michael McLaverty Short Story Award is accepting submissions until Thursday, June 30th.
The prize, which is run by the Linen Hall Library in Belfast, was set up in 2006 to foster and encourage the tradition of the Irish short story. Michael McLaverty (1904 – 1992) was one of Ireland’s distinguished short story writers and his archive was donated to the library in 2005.
Stories of up to 3,000 words on the theme of “LOST FIELDS” will be accepted and the entry fee is £10.
First prize is £2,000 and the top three stories will be published in an anthology.
