The Mogford Prize for Food & Drink Writing

Food and drink must be at the heart of the winning tale. Your short story could, for instance, be about crime or intrigue; about a chance meeting over a drink; a life-changing conversation over dinner; or perhaps the details of a relationship explored through food or drink.

More Details

Jeremy Mogford is a restaurateur who wishes to give something back to the hospitality industry which has been very good to him and combining it with his longstanding link to literary Oxford.
