The Mogford Prize for Food & Drink Writing
Entries for this year’s short story prize have now closed…
An introduction from Jeremy Mogford:
I am lucky enough to have enjoyed a lifetime in the hospitality industry with my involvement with Browns Restaurants, Rules in London and my current Oxford collection of the Old Bank, Old Parsonage, Quod, Parsonage Grill and Gee’s.
The city of Oxford has been an historical centre for literary excellence, so it seemed the perfect idea to create and sponsor an annual short story prize which specifically included the subjects of food and/or drink within the plot.
The first prize of £7,500 was awarded in 2013 and the prize has steadily grown in popularity, with the 2017 prize being increased to £10,000 we received a staggering 1,020 entries. Entries for the 2018 prize have now closed…Click here to go to our prize page >
