The shortlist of six was chosen from a longlist of 16 works that are all due to be published in an anthology by Brow Books in 2020. The winner will receive $2500 and publication in The Lifted Brow, with one runner-up receiving a $500 prize.

As previously reported by Books+Publishing, the Liminal Fiction Prize seeks to ‘promote fiction by writers whose voices are often ignored or elided’. The inaugural prize was open to short fiction of 5000 words or less, on the theme ‘the future’.
