Stringybark Dog Eat Dog Short Story Award 2017

Found in: News

This competition follows in the grand footsteps of our other thematic awards. For this competition, the Stringybark team are looking for stories that have as their title a cliché and include one reference to that cliché somewhere in the story.

They DO NOT want a story containing many clichés. Just one. Can you imagine the content of stories with titles such as:
  • A Bed of Roses
  • A Fate Worse than Death
  • A Hard Man is Good to Find
  • Behind the Eight Ball
  • Built Like a Brick Shithouse
  • The Female of the Species is Deadlier than the Male…
Stringybark invites you to write a short story of up to 1500 words that addresses this theme.

The Prize value for this competition is over $1000 in cash and books. International entries most welcome.

Closing date for entries is 16 July 2017. For more information, visit their website here.
