OutStanding Short Story Competition

The OutStanding Short Story Competition is Australia’s premier creative writing event for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer community of Australia and New Zealand.


We will launch the 2017 competition on 18 June at 4pm at the Stonewall Hotel, 175 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst, Sydney. Stories must be submitted by 1st September and the Awards Night will be in early October. To make sure you know all the details of this year’s competition, join our Facebook page.

Our 2017 competition is again supported by Aurora. We thank the Aurora Group for selecting us as a recipient for a second small grant, which will make this year’s competition bigger and better than ever. We also welcome a new partnership with IVF Australia, who will be sponsoring our new youth prize.
