New Zealand writers are being welcomed to get their creative juices flowing for an Australian writing contest. Organisers of the OutStanding Short Story Competition say it’s Australia’s premier creative writing event for the lgbtiq community. The first prize is $1,000, for a competition which has few rules other than a set length of 750 words which must be relevant to the Australian lgbtiq community, and the theme – which this year is ‘On The Edge’.
