Writing

It’s Short Story Time!


Hmmm. Do I take a break from editing and planning to write a short story? The last time I started to write a short story it ended up as novel!

Sunday Star-Times Short Story Awards 2010

The Sunday Star-Times Short Story Awards are back for 2010. Launched in 1984 with a vision to recognise and encourage the talent of aspiring New Zealand writers the Sunday Star-Times Short Story Awards are a key part of the NZ literary calendar.

Many of the country’s best-known authors have achieved success in the competition including Norman Bilbrough, Judith White, Barbara Anderson, Linda Olsson and Sarah Quigley.

The People’s Choice Award will be back again this year, where excerpts from the ten finalists’ stories will be published online and the winner will be decided entirely by public vote. Last years winner was also the second runner up for the Open Division written by Thom Conroy.

The Sunday Star-Times Short Story Awards could be your opportunity to become a published writer and win fantastic cash and book prizes.  Judged by leading New Zealand writers Charlotte Grimshaw and Joy Cowley, the winning three stories in each division will win cash, books from Random House and be published in the Sunday Star-Times.
