Wollongong Writers Festival Short Story Competition

Closing date: Thursday 15th September 2016.

This international short story prize is open to writers around the world regardless of age, genre or career stage.

Prize: AUD$1000 and publication in Mascara Literary Review.

Theme: Tidal.
Wollongong is a beautiful coastal city, but you still never know just what might wash up on the shore! We are really hoping people will take that theme and make it their own. That means that your submission doesn’t have to be all about the beach  (unless you want it to be).  All submissions are blind judged and our Judges are looking for a story that makes them sit up in their seats, regardless of genre.

Word Count: 2,500 words or less (not including the title).

Cost: AUD$12 per entry.

Announcement: The Winner will be announced at the final day of the 2016 Wollongong Writers Festival on Sunday the 27th November 2016. Anyone who enters the prize will be automatically signed up to the Festival Newsletter, but be sure to follow on social media as well where the Short List will be announced.

Details & Application: WWF2016 Website.
