The OutStanding Short Story Competition is Australia’s premier creative writing event for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer community of Australia and New Zealand. The theme for the 2016 competition is OPEN. The organisers are now calling for entries of 750 words or less.
The closing date for entries is 1 September 2016. The winners' event is on 25 September.
Stories must be your own work, and not previously published or read out in public. All stories should have relevance to the broader Australian LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer) community, and must relate to the theme in some way.
