Back by pop­u­lar de­mand, the ELLE Writ­ing Com­pe­ti­tion is your chance to have your short story pub­lished, and your voice heard

ELLE (Australia) - - Elle Fiction -

For this year’s ELLE Writ­ing Com­pe­ti­tion, we’re look­ing for mod­ern, con­tem­po­rary voices telling sto­ries that are en­gag­ing and sub­ver­sive. We want: fresh, mod­ern, top­i­cal tales that may or may not riff on pop cul­ture. Hu­mour is en­cour­aged but not es­sen­tial. We don’t want: sto­ries that make us sad. The world is dark enough.

While there’s no spe­cific theme, we want un­pub­lished sto­ries that cap­ture

the mood of the mo­ment. Write a 4,000-word short story on the topic of your choice. The dead­line for en­tries is Oc­to­ber 26, so if you’ve got a tale to tell, what are you wait­ing for? The win­ning fic­tion will be pub­lished in the Jan­uary/fe­bru­ary 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. Visit Elle.com.au/write-to-win for full de­tails on how to en­ter.
