Under the direction of Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, the Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University is launching the second Manchester Fiction Prize. The competition will award a cash prize of £10,000 to the writer of the best short story submitted, and is open internationally to both new and established writers aged 16 or over; there is no upper age limit.

All entrants are asked to submit a story of up to 3,000 words in length. The story can be on any subject, and written in any style, but must be fiction and new work, not published or submitted for consideration elsewhere during this competition.

The Manchester Fiction Prize celebrates the substantial literary achievements of Manchester, building on the work of the Manchester Writing School and enhancing the city’s reputation as one of Europe’s most adventurous creative spaces. The prizes will be awarded at a gala ceremony hosted as part of the 2011 Manchester Literature Festival.
