The competition is now closed for submissions. The winners will be announced at Conflux in October!


The CSFG is partnering up with Canberra’s premier speculative fiction convention, Conflux 11, to run a short story competition. We want your stories of 4000 words or under, in any speculative fiction genre, on this year’s theme, which is: light and light based technologies.

The competition is open to all Australian residents and members of either the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild or Conflux 11.

All the details can be found on the Short Story Competition page.

We’d appreciate it if everyone could get out the message through their social media channels. The more entrants we get the better!
