    The Mogford Prize For Food And Drink Writing 2019

    The Mogford Hotels and Restaurants Group is inviting entries for its seventh annual short story prize.

    Food and/or drink must be at the heart of the tale. The short story (no poems) could, for instance, be about crime or intrigue; about a chance meeting over a drink; a life-changing conversation over dinner; or perhaps the details of a relationship explored through food or drink. They are looking for a short story that hotel guests would enjoy reading while staying in one of their hotels.

    The short story should have a maximum of 2,500 words. There is no minimum.

    Entries must be submitted in English.

    Along with Jeremy Mogford there are two other judges for the Mogford Prize 2019: Julian Barnes and Tim Hayward.

    Entry fee: 10 GBP (approx. 13 USD) for each submitted short story.


    Open to anyone worldwide provided the entrant is over the age of 18 years at the time of the closing date.


    The winner will receive 10,000 GBP (approx. 12,960 USD), and three runner-up entrants will receive 250 GBP each.
