Stringybark Seven Deadly Sins Award 2017

The Stringybark Seven Deadly Sins Award is our second celebration of Pope Gregory I’s attempt at categorising human frailties. He reckoned there were seven major sins: wrath, gluttony, lust, greed, pride, jealousy and sloth.  Stringybark invites you to write a short story of up to 1500 words that addresses one (or more) of these sins in your story. We last ran this competition in 2012 and it led to a fabulous anthology of short stories published in The Seven Deadly Sins (2012).  The Prize value for this competition is over $1000 in cash and books. International entries most welcome.
