Kaliane Bradley wins the 2022 V.S. Pritchett Short Story Prize with ‘Doggerland’

Kaliane Bradley’s story ‘Doggerland’ has won the 2022 V.S. Pritchett Short Story Prize. Congratulations Kaliane!

The judges described ‘Doggerland’ as “A story that enthrals, shocks, engages, and delights … [it] plays expertly with genre, conjures this world and other worlds with confident economy, builds delicious suspense, deploys humour with near-perfect precision and, in the hands of a coolly dispassionate yet utterly compelling narrator, edges the reader towards an ending that will both unsettle and satisfy.”

The V.S. Pritchett Short Story Prize is an annual award for unpublished short stories between 2000 to 4000 words in length. Kaliane will receive £1,000 and her entry will be published in Prospect magazine online and the RSL Review. You can read it here.
