Short Stories Piled in

The hunt is on for the ten best short stories of 2009. 1,650 stories were entered online, and 125 by post, totaling 1775. The stories have come from all over the world, with an increase on previous years from Australia and New Zealand, and a trickle starting from India. This is a wonderful development for Fish. We want to give writers in every country the opportunity to be published and we want the diversity of stories in our anthologies. The shortlist will be read by competition judge Ronan Bennett in February and the winners will be announced on 17 March on

Meanwhile the Fish Poetry Prize€1,000 - is underway, with Matthew Sweeney as judge. Closing date is 30 March 2010, and poets can enter online on our website or by post to Fish Publishing, Durrus, Bantry, Co Cork, Ireland. Entry fee is 12 Euro per poem of up to 200 words. The ten best poems will be published in the 2010 Fish Anthology. We welcome poems written in English from all countries.
