Short Sharp Stories have announced that the theme for the 2017 Award is ‘Trade secrets’. Read more about what their definition of the phrase is below and see the winners of the 2016 Award here.
Our 2017 theme is… TRADE SECRETS
A trade refers to: a line of business or a profession, but also to a vocation, a calling, or pursuit of some sort of livelihood (for example priest, prostitute, plumber or politician; or baker or biltong maker; or contract wife or contract killer…)
A secret is any undisclosed information which provides an edge. The edge may be over a business competitor; it may involve manipulation of a customer or a partner; it may be written into a contract or shared as a verbal agreement.
