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.
- Entry fees: $14 for one story, $26 for two stories, $36 for three stories (max).
