Woollahra Digital Literary Awards 2019 shortlists announced

The shortlists for the 2019 Woollahra Digital Literary Awards, for writing first published online or electronically, have been announced.




A $3000 prize will be awarded to the winning entries in both the fiction and nonfiction categories, and the poetry winner will receive $1000. The fiction prize is awarded to the best novel, novella or short story collection ‘of a literary nature’; and the nonfiction prize to the best monograph, essay collection or long essay. Entries in both categories could range from 3000 to 80,000 words, and must have been published online or electronically in the first instance.

Entries are judged on literary merit but ‘bravery in publishing in emerging media is [also] acknowledged as part of what makes these works special’.

The winners in each category will be announced at an awards presentation at Woollahra Library in Double Bay on 30 May. For more information, see the website.
