The Australasian Association of Writing Programs (AAWP) and Westerly magazine are offering a prize for Life Writing. They welcome submissions of autobiography, biography, memoir, and essays. AAWP and Westerly celebrate Life Writing as a rumination upon memory and experience and encourage creative and hybrid approaches.

You can submit Life Writing submissions of up to 3500 words. The winner will receive a $500 cash prize, a one-year subscription to Westerly, and conference fees to attend the annual conference of the AAWP, where they will be invited to read from their work. Please see item 3 (Terms and conditions). The winner’s work will be considered for publication by Westerly.

Submissions close Friday 30 June, 11.59pm AEST.
