Stringybark Open Short Story Award 2021

The Stringybark Open Short Story Award 2021 is now open. Clean the spilt coffee out of your keyboard (or sharpen your goose quill — whichever is more appropriate) and start writing a 1500 word (max) story that will excite the judges. This is an open-themed award although there are three requirements:
  1. The story must be 1500 words or fewer in length;
  2. It must have a link, no matter how tenuous, to Australia; and
  3. It is written for an audience aged 16 and above.
We have an award pool of over $1000 in cash and books to encourage you in this endeavour, provided by our sponsor Stringybark Publishing.
