Small Truths: A Micro-essay Competition

Small Truths is a new award that invites incisive, succinct micro-essays on an aspect of Australian life, of no more than 300 characters (including spaces) in total.

The Small Truths award will be given to a micro-essay of exceptional quality, and which:

  • is no longer than 300 characters (with spaces)
  • was written between October 9 and November 9, 2020
  • addresses the theme ‘Australian life’ in a pithy observation of who we are and how we live
  • embodies keen insight and depth of knowledge, rather than sentiment.

Aesop and The Saturday Paper will shortlist five micro-essays, from which they will select the first-place entry. The winner will be awarded $1000 AUD.

Closing date: Monday 9 November 2020.
