The Sunday Times EFG Private Bank Short Story Award has established an international prize for a beloved form of fiction that’s never been more vital.
How is the short story evolving? Where is new talent emerging? Just a few hours before the winner of the £30,000 award is announced, these questions will be debated by master storyteller, novelist and playwright Hanif Kureishi, Joe Dunthorne, known for his first novel Submarine and previously shortlisted for the prize, Alison MacLeod, short-story writer and novelist, and actor Ian Hart. They will be joined by the literary editor of The Sunday Times, Andrew Holgate and some of the shortlist.
The event is chaired by Cathy Galvin, award director and deputy editor of The Sunday Times Magazine.
