Closed - The Hal Porter Short Story Competition

The 18th Annual Hal Porter Short Story Competition, run by the East Gippsland Art Gallery, invites Australian writers to submit short stories, in English, up to 2500 words. The style and format is up to you, though it must not have been published before - not even on your blog, so here is the chance to try something fresh and shiny!

First prize is an inspiring AUD$1000 and short listed authors will receive publications from the University of Qld Press.

Entry fee: AUD$6 admin fee

Prize:  AUD$1000 first prize, books for shortlisted entries

Open to: Australian writers

Deadline:  16 December 2011


The Writing Lab - Short Story Competition

The Writing Lab, which teaches business writing, is hosting a Short Story Competition on their Facebook Page.  And, when we say short, we mean only 420 characters.

The winner will be the story with the greatest number of Facebook 'likes', so apart from writing fabulous words, you'll need to work your social network contacts. Each story is posted as a comment.

And the best bit - the prize is a very desirable iPad2.

Entry fee: Free

Prize:  iPad2
