Alternarratives is a £15,000 prize for writers to explore innovation in short-form storytelling.

Nesta wants to unearth the future of cutting-edge short-form storytelling, encouraging writers based in the UK to think beyond the word document and use all the tools we have at our disposal to tell stories in new and exciting ways. In its pilot year, the prize will encourage storytellers to imagine how short-form fiction could help re-engage young people at secondary school, aged 11-16, with the act of reading for pleasure.
