Writers from across Australia are invited to enter the AlburyCity Short Story Award. There is no set theme. Just submit your most inspired writing!

Our short story judge, Margaret Hickey, will announce the award winners at the start of the Write Around the Murray Festival on Wednesday 11 September at 10am. The announcement will premiere on our YouTube channel. No matter where you live, you’ll be able to tune in as Margaret Hickey reflects on the stories that captured our judges' attention.

Short-listed stories will be listed on this page at least one week prior to the awards announcement. All entrants will be notified.

Please read the conditions of entry before submitting your story.
