Unity Books Short Story Writing Competition 2010

Unity Books in association with Sport Magazine is running a short story writing competition with a difference. The writing contest entitled The Long and the Short of It is looking for short stories that "inspire, inquire, disrupt and explain our lives" and challenges writers to submit a story "worth passing on."

The writing competition is open to all New Zealand writers and residents. Only one entry per person is permitted. Winning entries will be published in a book, "The Long and the Short" which will be launched at the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival 2011.

The writing contest will be judged by acclaimed authors: Elizabeth Knox, Emily Perkins and Bill Manhire. There are two categories: the short (under 1000 words) and the long (over 10,000 words). The winner of each category will receive a $1000.00 Unity Books voucher and will be published in Sport Magazine.
