I don’t normally bother with short story competitions (I’ve always had better luck getting work published than winning anything). However I notice that the EJ Brady Short Story Comp allows work ‘in any genre in adult or young adult literature‘.
Is this a chance for the likes of me?
The question is, can I write the sort of story that will impress the judges enough to win the $1500 first prize?
Personally, I’d prefer an all-expenses paid holiday in Mallacoota, possibly the most beautiful spot in Victoria, and the home of the EJ Brady competition.

And if you’ve any tips on how to write competition-winning short stories, I’ve love to hear them!
