Bridport Prize

I can’t think of a better way to start off my new writing blog, than to write about the richest open writing prize around, the Bridport Prize. The closing date is the 30th of June 2010 and with prizes of up to £5,000, it has helped support many a writer.

SHORT STORIES: 1st prize = £ 5000  (approx. 7460 US$, 5590 € ) 
POEMS: 1st Prize = £ 5000 (approx. 7460 US$, 5590 €)
FLASH FICTION: 1st Prize =£ 1000 (approx. 1490 US$, 1118 €)
