The winning story, along with the three runner-up stories, will be published on this Mogford Prize website shortly afterwards.

A hearty congratulations to the 25 writers that made it onto the 2021 Mogford Prize longlist.

Making it onto the longlist is a huge achievement given that, despite an unusual year for all, the annual competition attracted a significant number of entries, yet again, from all over the world.
