The White Review Short Story Prize is an annual short story competition for emerging writers. Established with support from a Jerwood Charitable Foundation Small Grant in 2013, the prize awards £2,500 to the best piece of short fiction by a writer resident in Britain & Ireland who has yet to secure a publishing deal. Previous winners are Claire-Louise Bennett, Ruby Cowling, Owen Booth, Sophie Mackintosh and Nicole Flattery. They have gone on to secure publishing deals with Hamish Hamilton, Fitzcarraldo Editions, Fourth Estate, The Stinging Fly, Bloomsbury and Boiler House. The 2018 winner Julia Armfield recently secured a book deal with Picador to publish her first collection of short stories, SALT SLOW, in May 2019.
