We received over 830 entries for the 2013 Overland Victoria University Short Story Prize for New and Emerging Writers, many of which were of a remarkably high standard. After lengthy consideration, the judges have selected a shortlist of 12 exceptional stories.
Overland is seeking fiction from new and emerging writers for a special online edition to be guest edited by writer and long-time Overland fiction reader, SJ Finn. For this special edition, ‘new and emerging’ describes a writer who has not yet published a book of stories or novel with commercial distribution.
Submissions close midnight, Wednesday 16 October.
