Chapter One

Have you have written a poetry collection, literary novel, short story collection, or a hybrid, genre-crossing work?

You could win a $500 cash prize, alongside fully subsidised conference fees for the AAWP’s annual conference in November 2020. You will also receive a written appraisal of your work from an established literary author and a letter of recommendation to UWAP, which will see your manuscript assessed without delay (and could even lead to a publishing contract)!

Eligible emerging writers are invited to submit one chapter (or 5,000 words) from a literary novel, short story collection, or a hybrid work that crosses genre boundaries. Alternatively, they may submit up to 50 lines of poetry from a larger poetry collection.

You must be an AAWP member, and you may enter as many times as you like.
