The Fair Australia Writing Prize is open for entries

The 2018 Fair Australia Prize – Australia’s only union-sponsored literary competition – is now open for entries. The prize invites writers of fiction, poetry and essays, as well as graphic artists, to be part of setting a new agenda for our future.

The prize will award a total of $18,000 in prize money to five winners. Winning entries will be published in a special Fair Australia edition of Overland, to be launched in Melbourne in early December. Entry to the prize is free.

The theme of this year’s prize is: new collectives, old struggles. Entrants are encouraged to approach the theme in innovative and unexpected ways.

The prize will close on 13 August 2018, at 11.59 pm AEST.
