We work with a combination of funding and other partners to deliver the Commonwealth Short Story Prize.

The 2015 Commonwealth Short Story Prize is financially supported by the Sigrid Rausing Trust.


Commonwealth Writerspartners with the literary magazine, Granta to give winners of the Commonwealth Short Story Prize the opportunity to be edited and published by Granta online.


‘Prizes like The Commonwealth Short Story are essential for introducing readers to emerging voices; we’re proud to be one of the first to publish these new talents,’ Sigrid Rausing, Editor, Granta.

In 2014 Commonwealth Writers began an association with the London-based literary and media agency Blake Friedmann, [link to their website:] which continues to work with selected writers identified through the Prize.


As part of our continuing global partnership with Hay Festival, the Overall Winners of the 2012 and 2013 Commonwealth Short Story Prize were announced at Hay, UK.
