Short Story Award


The theme for the 2017 AlburyCity Short Story Award is 'Shadows’. Shadows are intriguing in their duality; their ability to protect and shelter but also deceive and obscure. Harness the power of the short story to explore the complexity and depth that lies beyond the light.

Winners will be announced during Write Around the Murray at the awards night on Thursday 14 September.
