Stringybark Publishing invites Australian and international writers to try their hand at writing a historical fiction story. For this competition we would like you to take a particular historical incident and weave a story around it. The story could relate to some real event that was of international significance (the outbreak of the Korean War, for example) or of local historical interest (the election of the first woman councillor to Warabigga Shire Council in 1927). We don’t mind. All we require is for there to be a kernel of truth in what you write about and that the story has a link, no matter how tenuous, to Australia.

The word length is 1500 words. International entries are most welcome. Details at:
