The Stella Kupferberg Memorial Short Story Prize is a writing competition sponsored by the stage and radio series, Selected Shorts. This long-running series at Symphony Space in New York City celebrates the art of the short story by having stars of stage and screen read aloud the works of established and emerging writers. Selected Shorts is recorded for Public Radio and heard nationally.
The 2016 Stella Kupferberg Memorial Short Story Prize will be judged by T.C. Boyle, author of World’s End and The Harder They Come. The winning work will be performed and recorded live at the Selected Shorts performance at Symphony Space on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, and published on Electric Literature. The winning writer will receive $1000 and a free 10-week course with Gotham Writers.
