The £5,000 Edge Hill Prize is awarded annually by Edge Hill University for excellence in a published single author short story collection. In addition to the main award, there is a £1,000 Readers’ Prize judged by BA Creative Writing students; and an additional category worth £500 acknowledging rising talents on the University’s MA Creative Writing course.
Previous years’ winners have been Colm Tóibín, Claire Keegan, Chris Beckett, Jeremy Dyson, Graham Mort and Sarah Hall who won both the main prize and the Readers’ Prize in 2012, for The Beautiful Indifference. She will join the panel of judges for the 2013 awards, which will be presented in London in July. Publishers are invited to submit collections for consideration up to the closing date of 4th March 2013. A shortlist of five will be announced by 31st May 2013.
