Event Details

Minds Shine Bright is an arts business based in Melbourne Australia committed to supporting the arts and writers.

The Storm Anthology, featuring the winning and commended entries from the first Seasons writing competition is being launched across Australia and internationally. The theme for Seasons 2023/24 is light and shadow.

All prizes are awarded on literary merit. Cash prizes will be paid in Australian dollar value. A first prize of $500 will be awarded to the most outstanding piece of fiction or poetry overall.

Winning and commended entries will form the competition Shortlist and shortlisted entries will be published in the second Minds Shine Bright Seasons series anthology Light and Shadow. Each winning and commended entry author will receive a print copy and e-book of the Light and Shadow anthology.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, 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.
