On 11th July, the winner of the Pin Drop Short Story Award 2018 will be announced and narrated by a special guest at the Royal Academy of Arts in the new Benjamin West Lecture Theatre.
Now in its fourth year, the Pin Drop Short Story Award is an annual non-profit, open-submission writing prize, staged by Pin Drop in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts. It offers a platform for new writing open to published and unpublished writers from anywhere across the globe to showcase their short fiction. It has discovered voices with verve and confidence. Past winners include Bethan Roberts, Claire Fuller and Cherise Saywell for their extraordinary stories, which have been narrated for our podcast series here by Stephen Fry, Juliet Stevenson and Dame Penelope Wilton.
The evening will also mark the launch of Pin Drop’s first anthology of original short fiction, A Short Affair, published on 12 July by Scribner.
Further details to be announced shortly. Booking opens soon.
