Event Details

The Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize is an annual short fiction competition organized by the Australian Book Review. The competition is open to anyone.

Entries must be a single, original story of 2,000 to 5,000 words, written in English.

Stories can be on any subject and in any style. Previously published, prize-winning, or broadcast stories will not be accepted.

The three shortlisted stories will be published in the August or September 2024 issue of Australian Book Review and on the ABR website.

We are keen to encourage quality, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
