So you think you’ve got what it takes to write for ELLE magazine? Then start typing. In 2017, there’s never been a better time for the next generation of women to make their voices heard
We’re on the lookout for fiction’s next superstar. Here at ELLE, we think emerging talent deserves all the support it can get, and we have a real soft spot for a great storyteller. So, we want you to show us your best work of fiction. If your dream involves being the next Jane Harper, Liane Moriarty or Zoë Foster Blake (who just happens to be one of our judges), now is the time to get started.
OVER TO YOU Write a 4,000-word short story on the topic of your choice. Where you choose to take it is up to you. Fall in love, rule the country or walk a day in Beyoncé’s shoes. The aim is to move the judges, whether they laugh, cry (or cringe). Deadline for entries is November 3, so if you’ve got a story to tell, go on and get telling it. Visit Elle.com.au/write-to-win for full details on how to enter.
The winning fiction will be published in the January issue of ELLE, and the author awarded a $5,000 prize. Two runners-up will receive a prize pack of recent releases from Hachette Australia worth $200.
