2024 Stella Kupferberg Memorial Short Story Prize
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 on both the radio and its weekly podcast.
The 2024 Stella Kupferberg Memorial Short Story Prize will be judged by Carmen Maria Machado (In the Dream House, Her Body and Other Parties). The winning work will be performed by an actor in spring 2024, and published on Electric Literature. The winning writer will receive $1000 and a free 10-week course with Gotham Writers.
