Reward: honour and gloryEvery year, in August, the Guardian's Weekend magazine publishes a selection of original fiction by some of the best authors writing today. Last year's fiction special featured stories by Hilary Mantel, Roddy Doyle, David Mitchell and Barbara Trapido, among others, and this summer they will be unveiling another line-up of stellar names. Yours could be among them.
Top novelists judge the entries, and they will be looking for the most original, gripping and well-crafted pieces of writing. Their favourite story will be published in the magazine, while the five runners-up will have their stories published online.
Send your story to Short Stories, Guardian Weekend, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9GU, or email it to email@example.com (no attachments). Include a daytime phone number with your entry.
