The scribes of Northland are sharpening their nibs with the launch of a national short story competition.

The Northland branch of the New Zealand Society of Authors (NZSA) has called on writers to enter its national short story competition, which has a prize of $300.

The competition is open to any writer who is resident in New Zealand and entrants can submit short stories of up to 1,500 words on any theme or topic.

Northland judges include Diana Menefy, founding chairperson of the Northland branch of NZSA, and children’s writer Justine Payen.

Entries close on July 31, with winners being announced on September 1.

Entry details are available on the New Zealand Society of Authors website.
