Over A$1000 in cash and books, plus publication.
Stringybark Publishing is proud to sponsor The Stringybark Stories Short Story Award. 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. It can be set wherever your fancy takes you. It can involve characters from the past, the future or today. The only two stipulations are that it must have a link, no matter how tenuous, to Australia (the vegemite sambo on the counter is fine) and suitable for readers over the age of sixteen.
The word length is 1500 words and the closing date is 19 January 2020. International entries are most welcome.
