The theme for the Third National Republican Short Story Competition is ‘Citizen or Subject’. Short stories will speculate on Australian republican futures. They don’t have to be political thrillers or constitutional whodunits as long as they are an exploration of our future, our republican future.
Stories must be original and unpublished.
The 2011 judges are novelist Thomas Keneally, Professor John Warhurst (ANU) and Professor George Williams (UNSW).
