Autumn is just around the corner, which means The London Magazine‘s Short Story Competition 2017 is upon us.
The London Magazine has published short stories by some of the most well-respected literary figures over the course of long history. Our annual Short Story Competition seeks out new voices to join them. Established to encourage emerging literary talent, the award provides an opportunity for publication and recognition, as well as rewarding imagination, originality and creativity.

Prize winners will also be invited to a reception in early 2018.
