Salt’s annual anthologies of new writing showcase the best in short fiction and poetry from established and up-and-coming writers from around the world. This new selection of winners and runners-up from the inaugural International Salt Prizes has been chosen by judges and publishers, Chris and Jen Hamilton-Emery.
The contributors come from Canada, India, Ireland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, reflecting both the wealth of new writing and the extent to which English has become a world language: transcending national boundaries and building a global community of literary practitioners.
