Competitions - Prose


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.  This 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.
Judging is on a blind basis with a minimum of two judges.

Categories include fictional short story and memoir.

The competition opens on or about the 1st June each year so put a note in your diary and check back here then for all the details, conditions and the entry form.
In the mean time you might like to peruse the Tips & Tricks pages under the Prose Competition tab above.

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.

For any further details please contact us.
