Short-story competition in honour of literary greats Bowen and Trevor
To honour two great figures of Irish fiction, the Mitchelstown Literary Society has announced the launch of the second William Trevor/Elizabeth Bowen International Short Story Competition. The society, which was founded to celebrate the lives and works of two of our literary greats with Mitchelstown connections inaugurated the short-story competition last spring. Evolving as a natural adjunct to their annual literary festival, it aims to provide a competitive outlet for new and emerging writers in the short-story genre.
With a very generous first prize worth €3,000 (thanks to the sponsorship of William Trevor), a second prize of €500 and five runners-up prizes of €200 each, this competition is well worth entering.
There is a fee of €20 per entry and the closing date for receipt of entries is last post on Friday, March 30, 2012.
The winner and runners up will be notified personally and results will be posted to the competition website as they become available.
Entries, by post only, to:
Trevor/Bowen International Short Story Competition,
37 Upper Cork Street,
