Short Story Comp – Realistic Horror

This month The Australian Literature Review is accepting submissions for best realistic horror story – that is, non-supernatural horror – (1000-3000 words), as part of the Short Story Competition running in Sep, Oct and Nov.

The winner will receive personal feedback from JJ Cooper on their short story (400-500 words) and a $250 Angus & Robertson voucher.

You can find realistic horror reading suggestions at www.angusandrobertson.com.au/auslit-review. Reading the synopses for the suggested novels may also help you with ideas for your own story, but keep in mind that your story does not have to follow the kinds of realistic horror fiction which have previously been published – your story can be in any style as long as it is has a realistic horror focus.

Entries are due by midnight October 20th and the winner will be announced on Halloween, October 31st.

In November the best adventure story will receive feedback from Tony Park and a $250 Angus & Robertson voucher.

Happy writing!
