Audrey Daybook 2019 Short Story Prize

In a world where the extent of our creative flair is often limited to 280 characters, Audrey Daybook seeks to foster the art and practise of good old-fashioned story writing. 2019 marks the launch of the inaugural Audrey Daybook Short Story Prize competition, where we will publish a different reader’s short story in each issue. We invite Audrey‘s community of amateur, aspiring and accomplished writers to enter!

Four stories will be shortlisted and published in Audrey Daybook, beginning from our March issue through to September, with the semi-finalists receiving a 12 month subscription to the Lovatts Media title of their choice. At the end of the year we’ll announce our 2019 Audrey Daybook Short Story Prize winner who will receive a $1,000 cash prize!

Ready to start writing? Your fictional story must be inspired by one of the puzzle names in Audrey Daybook (as listed below) and be between 800 and 1,000 words. Submit your entry to

We look forward to reading your stories. Best of luck!
