2015 Commonwealth Short Story Prize Opens

Posted on 19/09/2014
By Commonwealth Foundation

The race for the 2015 Commonwealth Short Story Prize is on. We had a launch event in London on Tuesday, a day after the prize officially opened for entries. This means you still have nearly two months to Enter the Prize.
We invited four writers for a panel discussion, as part of our series of Commonwealth Writers Conversations. As you can see from the picture above, Romesh Gunesekera, Leila Aboulela, Kei Miller and Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi discussed how humour in short stories can help navigate difficult topics. What could possibly go wrong?
