2014 Jolley Prize
Entries are now open for the 2014 ABR Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize worth a total of $8000. This year, for the first time, we will be accepting online entries as well as hard-copies. We have also decided to open the Prize so that all writers, not just Australians, are eligible to enter.
Entries must be a single-authored short story of between 2000 and 5000 words, written in English. Stories must not have been previously published or be on offer to other prizes or publications for the duration of the Jolley Prize.
Entry costs AU$15 for current ABR subscribers or AU$20 for non-subscribers. Entrants who are not current ABR subscribers can choose to subscribe to ABR Online when submitting their story for the special combined price of AU$50 for one entry and one year's access to ABR Online.
Entries close at midnight on 1 May 2014. We will be announcing the shortlist and the winner at a special event at the 2014 Melbourne Writers' Festival.
