2019 JONES STORY PRIZE

The history of human culture and tradition is littered with stories. A story can spark a war or provide a blanket of peace, move its listeners to joy or to tears, build walls that gouge the skies or bridges that stand time’s test. The Jones Story Prize is open to unpublished fiction novels or short story collections with narratives that leave lasting impressions.
