Following in the footsteps of the revolutionary ad generous spirit of Mairtín, we are delighted to announce that we will proceed, as planned with the Mairtín Crawford Awards for Poetry and Short Story.
For this edition of the Awards, to underpin our ambition to support writing talent we are making a couple of changes. We have augmented the cash prize for the Winner of each Award to £1,000, and added two runners up Prizes in each category.
We have also extended the deadline by a couple of weeks to give us a bit more time to spread the word. For all the details on this year’s Award, including the Judges, please see https://belfastbookfestival.com/mairtin-crawford-award
