For the 2004 Next Wave Festival in Melbourne in May, Voiceworks is gathering a stack of short short short stories for very public display around the CBD. We’re looking for stories that are less than 25 words and we need them by 1 April.

Narratives, fiction, poetry, non-fiction, insights, comments, text graphics; words that will make an impact on the Melbourne cityscape and give people some creative breathing space in places usually bombarded by advertising or too busy to look up.

Submission guidelines
• Each story is less than 25 words
• Include a three-word headline
• Attach a 25-word biography for the website (essential. We’ll make it up if you don’t)
• Content must be G-rated, your own work and previously unpublished
• Be under 30 (welcome back to those who have fallen off the Voiceworks age page … here’s your chance to come back to the fold for one exciting project)
• Only submit 10 pieces
• No formatting
• Include your name (and pseudonym if you want one)
• List your contact details (email, post, phone)
• We can’t pay you for your published work, but we put your bio on the site and credit you on the piece. Surely it’s the fame, not the money you want?
