The Dinesh Allirajah Prize for Short Fiction 2020
Deadline: Fri 25 Oct 2019
Independent publisher Comma Press and the University of Central Lancashire have formed a new partnership with the Northern Short Story Festival to once again deliver the Dinesh Allirajah Prize for Short Fiction, now in its third year.

This year we're asking for short stories on the theme of 'Artificial Intelligence' of between 2000 - 6000 words in length.

Open to both published and un-published writers based in the UK aged 18 or over, this prize aims to seek out the best established and up and coming voices in the form, in honour of Dinesh Allirajah who passed away suddenly in 2015.

Dinesh, who described himself as a jazz writer, lectured in creative writing at the University of Central Lancashire for eight years and was a long-term director of Comma Press.

The winning writer will receive £500 and will have their story published online by Northern Soul. All 10 shortlisted authors will be featured in an eBook anthology which will be published by Comma Press and sold online.

The prizegiving ceremony will take place in Leeds as part of the Northern Short Story Festival in May/June 2020.

Entry is free but limited to one per writer.

Deadline: 25th October 2019
