Wordplay Annual Qld Schools Microfiction Writing Competition

The Brisbane Writers Festival and the University of Queensland present the annual schools’ microfiction competition, open to Queensland-based schools students. The 2022 prompt is this illustration by me!

Students are invited to respond to the image in no more than 120 words, using any written format (verse/ prose). Shortlisted entrants will be invited to present a reading of their microfiction at the awards ceremony during the Festival.

The winner will receive a cash prize of $1000 thanks to UQ, and a book pack featuring every Word Play 2022 title for their school. 

The award information is on the BWF website here: https://bwf.org.au/whats-on/word-play-2022/microfiction-competition

And the entry form is here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BWF2022MicrofictionCompetition

(I’ll post some more about the process, in the future.)
