Mogford Short Story Prize 2020 Winner

Stephen Fry, Prue Leith and I have chosen the winner of this year’s ‘Mogford Short Story Prize for Food & Drink Writing’.

The worthy winner, selected from 1,280 entries from all around the world, is Laura Theis and she collects the £10,000 prize for her terrific story ‘The Lift’.

As many of you know, we usually have a presentation party in April at Quod which, for obvious reasons, has been postponed, but you can find Laura’s story along with the others on the Short List on the Mogford Prize website. Laura’s fabulous story can either be read online or listened to in an audio version produced by The Story Player.

Now here’s an idea, the stay at home lockdown period could be your ideal opportunity to write the little short story bottled up inside you and enter for 2021! Entries will open this November so we look forward to hearing from you then…
