Bloomsbury Publishing, in association with the Australian Writers’ Centre, is launching a competition challenging writers to pen a crime story in 1,000 words or less.
Every two months one of Bloomsbury’s crime authors will be laying down the creative gauntlet with an original short story and setting the theme. Then it’s over to you to do your worst. Criminally speaking of course!
Every two months we will chose ONE winner and their story will be featured on the Short Sentence website. Once the competition has closed all the winning stories will be published as a Short Sentence eBook along with the Featured Authors’ stories. This will be available for free from all online book retailers. Each winner will also win a selection of Bloomsbury crime books.
We will announce an OVERALL WINNER who will win a place on the Australian Writers’ Centre five week writing course (at Milsons Point in Sydney, Chapel Street in Melbourne or online) and a selection of Bloomsbury’s crime books.
Other authors taking part include Thomas Mogford, Anne Zouroudi, Michael Harvey and Conor Fitzgerald.
