Each year, Odyssey House Victoria hosts a Short Story Competition with a first place prize of $1000 and a one year membership to Writers Victoria. 2017’s theme was “Courage” and we received a staggering number of entries. The shortlist was selected by author of “In the Quiet”, Eliza-Jane Henry Jones and the winners selected by a panel of judges which included, Dr Stefan Gruenert, Odyssey House CEO and Author Andrew Whitmore. First place was awarded to Jannette Gibbons for her moving story “Healing”. All the stories from winners and highly commended writers can be found here.
Thank you to everyone who entered. The Short Story Competition will open again in August 2018.
