Share Your Story
Writing Competition 2019

We are very proud to launch our second Share Your Story Annual Anthology.

Please submit either a complete short story up to 1500 words (no first chapters or to be continued…) or a poem of no more than 650 words. The theme is "Scary Stories" and our judges are looking for creative, engaging stories or poems that will appeal to children aged 8 to 13 years old.

We would love you to have the chance to be published in our next anthology, which will be distributed to children in hospitals all over Australia. When you are writing, please consider your target audience. The stories need to be scary, but not too scary. We don't want to give anyone nightmares.

You can enter as many times as you like and will receive feedback from the judges on your entry. All work must be original and school students are more than welcome to enter. 

Project "Spooktacular Stories"

To ensure that sick kids in Australian hospitals have books to take them away from their every day, every time a copy of "Spooktacular Stories" is purchased, Share Your Story will donate a copy to a patient in a children's ward. 

Thank you for your support
