David T.K. Wong Prize Cancelled

Blog reader Janet Tay wrote to tell me that the one of the most important short story competitions, the David T. K. Wong Prize, has been cancelled. English PEN which administers the award cites economic factors and International PEN's long term strategy for the future.

As Janet points out, there really aren't many competitions open to international entries. Let's hope International PEN comes up with something good to put in its place soon!
