Scribes Writers "Short Takes" Prose competition has now closed.

Judging has begun and the results will be published on this site on Friday 9th November 2018.

Once again the judges will need all that time to properly consider the excellent quality of the entries received this year in both short story and memoir categories. The quantity of entries also was great to receive showing that the art of writing is flourishing.
If you were one of the entrants this year may we extend our thanks for your support and our best wishes for your success.
If you were not an entrant this year why not try your hand next year. Keep a check on this site for details.


Each year Scribes Writers run a prose competition where cash prizes are awarded for first and second places with certificates for Highly Commended and Commended submissions.
Categories include short story and memoir and the competition, "Short Takes", is open to all, not just to our own members. Indeed, in past competitions, we have received entries from every state and territory of Australia.
