The MPH-Alliance Bank National Short Story Prize 2009 Shortlist
THE INAUGURAL MPH-Alliance Bank National Short Story Prize aims to identify and recognise the best Malaysian short stories. The judges have read all the longlisted entries over a period of a month and have deliberated on the flaws and merits of each story to arrive at a shortlist (in no particular order) of six that best encapsulate the Malaysian experience.
One of these six stories will be chosen as the Grand Prize Winner. Who will it be? Check out whether your story has been shortlisted for the prize in the July-September 2009 issue of MPH Quill magazine, which will only be available from July 15, 2009, onwards.
Heartiest congratulations to all winners!
