NOOSA - The Commonwealth Short Story Prize is awarded each year for the best piece of unpublished short fiction of 2,000–5,000 words.
The closing date is Sunday 1 November (see below for more information and entry form).
So it’s time to take one of your unpublished short stories out of the file or get the keyboard smoking with your entry in the prize.
Regional winners each receive £2,500 (K11,300) and the overall winner receives £5,000 (K22,600).
Winning entries will also be provided with a publishing opportunity.
The competition is free to enter and open to any citizen of a Commonwealth country aged 18 and over.
Papua New Guinean writers have entered in the past. The late Francis Nii entered a few times and it has been remarked that “his stories were always interesting and firmly rooted in the social context of PNG”.
So please do enter your story and spread the word to other writers in PNG and the Pacific region.
