Competitions - Prose


This year, as in the past, Scribes Writers is running the popular open literary competition where cash prizes are awarded for first and second places with certificates for Highly Commended and Commended submissions. This competition, "Short Takes", is open to all, not just to our own members and indeed, in past competitions, we have received entries from every state and territory of Australia.

Submissions are now invited for the 2021 "Short Takes" competition.

Details & Conditions of Entry, including prize details, are set out under the Prose Competition drop down menu above or directly accessed here.
The required cover sheet Entry Form (covering up to five entries per sheet) can also be accessed there, via the Prose Competition drop down menu above  or directly accessed here.

To select from the tab,  just place your cursor over the Prose Competition tab and, without clicking, run it down to the appropriate tab and then click.

We have prevailed on past judges to provide some tips on crafting a winning entry for both short story and memoir categories and these can be accessed here for short stories and here for memoirs.

If you were one of the entrants in previous years we extend our thanks for your support, hope that we will hear from you again and that you continue to hone your skills in this craft of writing.
If you have not been an entrant in previous years why not try your hand this year?

For any further details please contact us.
