Call for Submissions: 2012 Asham Award
This year’s Asham Award is open for business. The annual short story competition for women is open to writers who have not yet had a novel or story collection published.
The shortlist will be announced early next year and winner will receive £2,700 and be invited to Small Wonder – the literary festival dedicated to the short story in Charleston, East Sussex.
The award is again teaming up with Virago, who will be publishing the winning entry in an anthology of specially-commissioned stories, along with a classic from the archives (this year, one from Angela Carter).
