Audrey 2020 Short Story Prize

In a world where the extent of our creative flair is often limited to 280 characters, Audrey seeks to foster the art and practise of good old-fashioned story writing. After the success of the 2019 Short Story Prize, we’re pleased to open entries on the Audrey 2020 Short Story Prize competition. We invite Audrey’s community of amateur, aspiring and accomplished writers to enter!

Throughout 2020, four stories will be shortlisted and published in Audrey, 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 2020 Audrey 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 and be between 800 and 1,000 words. You can find a complete list of Audrey’s puzzle names by visiting or perusing the current or previous issues. Submit your entry to

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