Entries close 14 August 2022 at 11:59 pm AEST

The Twisted Stringybark Short Story Award 2022 is now accepting entries. They are looking for great short stories that have a twist somewhere.

There are three stipulations

  • The story is to be written for those over the age of 16
  • It must have a link, no matter how tenuous, to Australia, such as a mention of a Vegemite sandwich, or the fact that Australia is the world’s biggest exporter of climate-destroying coal. The story could be set in Australia or have an Australian in it.
  • No more than 1500 words.

There is an award pool of more than $1000 in cash and books to encourage aspiring writers.
