The Galley Beggar Press
Short Story Prize



The GBP Short Story Prize 2018/19 is currently open to submissions. While it is, we’ll be revisiting last year’s fantastic longlist- and shortlistees, with links to their work. 

Our sixth finalist, from the 2016/17 longlist of 13 authors and shortlist of four, is Malachi McIntosh. 

MALACHI McINTOSH was born in Birmingham, England but raised in the United States. He worked as a lecturer in English at the University of Cambridge for four years before stepping down from his post in June 2016 to focus on writing full-time. His work has been published in Broadcast, The Caribbean Review of Books, Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine, Fugue, The Guardian, The Journal of Romance Studies, Under the Radar, Research in African Literatures, and Wasafiri. He has published two academic monographs, Emigration and Caribbean Literature and Beyond Calypso: Re-Reading Samuel Selvon, and was the 2014 recipient of the David Higham Writing Award.

Malachi McIntosh’s 2016/17 GBP Short Story Prize shortlisted story, ‘Limbs’, can be accessed here.
