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 winning author, from the 2017/18 longlist of 10 authors and shortlist of four, is C.S. Mee. 

C.S. MEE grew up in Birkenhead and now lives in Durham. She has an MA in Creative Writing from Lancaster University and a PhD in French and Italian literature. Her stories have been published in Popshot Magazine, Wasafiri, The Salt Anthology of New Writing 2013, Unthology and Prole, as well as online. She won the Wasafiri New Writing competition in 2012 and the Northern Writers’ Clare Swift Short Story Award in 2015. She has recently completed a novel. 

C.S. Mee’s 2017/18 GBP Short Story Prize-winning story, ‘Brothers’, is available to read here.

You can read our ten-question interview with C.S. here.
