The Story Prize has announced its three finalists this year:
by Daniyal Mueenuddin
Drift: Stories by Victoria Patterson
by Wells Tower
The finalists were selected from 78 story collections from 53 different publishers or imprints.
The Story Prize is one of the largest prizes given for a collection of short stories. The winner is presented with $20,000 and an engraved silver bowl. The two runners-up both receive $5,000.
Last year I got on Larry Dark’s bad side when I implied that the last author listed always won the prize. Apparently, the authors are listed in alphabetical order and it was JUST A COINCIDENCE that the last author won several years in a row. Soooooo, that being said, my money’s on Wells Tower.
The awards ceremony will be held on March 3 at 7:30pm at the Tishman Auditorium in New York City. For tickets, contact the New School box office at 212-229-5488 or click here.
