The Spineless Wonders’ Slinkies team scouts for new and emerging writers from across Australia. This year, in collaboration with the National Young Writers Festival, the team will host the Phone It In competition to find the best stories up to 100 words.
The theme is open, entry is free and there is no limit to the number of entries. All entries must be submitted as audio files (recorded on any device and in any audio format) and uploaded to Submission Manager via this link
The competition is open to any person aged between 18 and 35 years of age who is residing in Australia or any Australian living overseas.
The NYWF/Slinkies competition will open on May 22 and closes on August 1.
The Slinkies team will select a shortlist of submissions and these will be loaded on to the Spineless Wonders StoryPhones which will be installed at various locations at the National Young Writers Festival events. The National Young Writers’ Festival is a free and accessible festival held in Newcastle, NSW over the weekend of September 28 – October 1.
Festival-goers will have a chance to listen to all finalists on the Spineless Wonders’ StoryPhones throughout the festival and to vote for their favourites using a voting slip.
The votes will be counted by the Slinkies team and winning entries will be announced and performed live on the final night of the festival. The winner and runners-up will receive Spineless Wonders book packs including ebook vouchers for Slinkies eSingles.
