We’re excited to be celebrating the winner of the 2021 White Review Short Story Prize, sponsored by RCW, at Reference Point on 2 December. This year’s prize was awarded to RZ Baschir for ‘The Chicken’. On behalf of the judging panel, Preti Taneja said that the story ‘announces her as a brilliant new talent.’

 

Join us for short readings, followed by drinks in Reference Point’s bookshop and bar space. Issues of The White Review will be on sale, as well as Reference Point’s unique collection of first editions. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

 

The White Review Short Story Prize, sponsored by RCW, is an annual short story competition for emerging writers. The prize awards £2,500 to the best piece of short fiction by a writer resident in Britain & Ireland yet to secure a publishing deal.
Previous winners of the prize were Claire-Louise Bennett, Ruby Cowling, Owen Booth, Sophie Mackintosh, Nicole Flattery, Julia Armfield, Vanessa Onwuemezi and Elizabeth O’Connor.
