Stringybark Publishing is proud to sponsor the Stringybark Short Story Award 2022.


This is our flagship open-themed award. The only condition is that there must be some reference to Australia. It could be a mention of a vegemite sandwich, or the fact that Australia is the world's biggest exporter of coal. The story could be set in Australia or have an Australian in it.


The story must be:

  •    1500 words or fewer in length;

  •     have a link to Australia in it;

  •     written for an audience aged 16 and above.


We have an award pool of over $1000 in cash and books to encourage you in this endeavour, provided by our sponsor Stringybark Publishing.
