A Brighton literary night has launched a new annual short story prize.

The Brighton Prize is being awarded by Rattle Tales, a Brighton and Hove-based live literature event.

The prize is for short stories of between 1,000 and 2,000 words on any subject.

The winner will receive £400 and the chance to give a reading of their work at Rattle Tales’ Brighton Fringe show in May.

Two runners up will also be offered a Fringe reading as well as winning £50.

The top ten stories will be published in anthology and promoted by Rattle Tales.

The prize will be judged by two Brighton-based authors, Bethan Roberts and Laura Lockington.

Roberts is the author of My Policeman, The Pools and The Good Plain Cook, while Lockington has written The Cornish Affair, Cupboard Love and Stargazy Pie.

The competition is open to anyone aged over-18 living in the UK or Ireland.

The closing date is Tuesday 1 April and there is an entry fee of £6.
