Supported by the Malcolm Robertson Foundation, and named after the late Neilma Gantner, this prize seeks excellent short fiction of up to 3000 words themed around the notion of ‘travel’; imaginative, creative and literary interpretations are strongly encouraged. This competition is open to all writers, nationally and internationally, at any stage of their writing career.
The winning story will receive a $4000 first prize and be published in Overland’s first print issue for 2018. Two runners-up will each receive $500 and be published at Overland online to coincide with the release of the print magazine.
