AHWA Flash and Short Story Competition

AHWA Flash and Short Story Competition

This is Australia’s leading unpublished horror fiction competition and winning entries are always imaginative, engaging, well-written, and bloody scary. We need tales that frighten, yarns that unsettle us in our comfortable homes. All themes in horror will be accepted, from the supernatural classics (zombies, vampires, ghosts), to psychological roller-coaster rides, to the highly original. Flash up to 1000 words, short stories up to 8000 words. Writers may submit to one or both categories, but entry is limited to one story per author per category.
