Online Short Story CompetitionOn-line Kurzgeschichten competition
Many thanks to all writers who submitted the award. We are working on choosing the 10 histories to be released in Fish Anthology 2018. Launched in 1994, the Fish Short Story Award has become a fixture in the literature calender. Tonight's judges, celebrated short story author Billy O'Callaghan, will choose 10 short story titles to be featured in Fish Anthology 2018.
The Things we Loose, The Things We leave Behind and In Too Deep, Billy O'Callaghan's two short story novels, have heralded a new, uncommon gift on the international and Ireland stages and won numerous heralds. The Dead House, his first novel, was nominated for the Costa Award this year.
Fish Anthology 2018 will be presented during the West Cork Literary Festival (July 2018). The yearly Fish Books was for many of our editors a springboard to a succesful work. The Critique Service is for those who need an evaluation of their work before or at any point in the competition.
