The lovely people at Salt - publishers of my collection - have just launched three new literary awards called The Salt Prizes. The prizes aim to find the best new writing from around the world with categories available for best single short story, best piece of flash fiction and best poem. The winners will receive a cash prize as well as publication in a new anthology called The Salt Anthology of New Writing (other selected finalists will also be published in the book). The prizes launched on July 1st, with submissions being accepted until the closing date of October 31st. To find out more about the prizes and how to enter click here. This is a great opportunity for all writers no matter what stage of their career they're at, so why not give it a go? If you enter you'll also receive a voucher for 30% off any book in Salt's online shop - even more of an incentive. Good luck!
