The Australian Literature Review is running monthly short story competitions for April, May and June.
The theme for April is: Conflict Between Close Friends
Stories should have a strong element of conflict between characters who are or were close friends.
Stories for April are due by midnight on the 20th and the winner will be announced on the 30th. Stories should be previously unpublished.
Shortlisted stories each month will be displayed on The Australian Literature Review, helping writers reach readers and gain recognition.
Writers outside Australia are welcome to enter to have your story shortlisted and displayed on the site but only writers in Australia are eligible for the monthly prizes. International writers should indicate in your email if you live outside Australia.
The fan fiction competitions for The Life and Times of Chester Lewis and for Possessing Freedom are also open to entries of 2000-4000 word stories until August 31, and each has a first prize of $2000.
