Flashscapes! Love to Read Local Flash Competition

Writing WA, in partnership with the Copyright Agency Limited Cultural Fund, Raine Square and Night Parrot Press, is delighted to open the Love to Read Local Flash Competition for its fourth year.

This year, we are seeking lightning sharp flash fiction and non-fiction pieces of 100-words or fewer, inspired by West Australian landscapes, seascapes, towns and landmarks. For inspiration, head to the Love to Read Local Literary Map.

Submissions are open until Friday 19 May (5.00 pm AWST).

The shortlist will be announced on Friday 2 June to kick off Love to Read Local Week 2023, and the winner and runners-up will be announced at a special event to be held on Friday 16 June.

All entries will be published here on the Love to Read Local website. Shortlisted entries will also be published on the Raine Square Short Edition Story Dispenser and on Writing WA’s Literary Map.

First, second, and third place will each be awarded a Raine Square gift card to the value of $500, $300, and $200 respectively.

Entry is free and open to anyone over the age of 18 living in Western Australia.
