#LoveOzYA Short Stories
Short tales from the Australian writers of tomorrow
Underdog is the first #LoveOzYA short story anthology for unpublished Australian writers. We are seeking submissions from Australian young adult fiction writers of all ages.
We believe young adult fiction is the perfect form for expressing what it means to be Australian, given that our country is, in essence, a 'young adult' itself. We are particularly interested in short stories that celebrate the diverse, dynamic and ever-changing nature of our young nation's culture, or that challenge the idea of what it means to be 'Australian'.
At Underdog, we are dedicated to providing unpublished writers with a platform for their stories, as we believe there are too many brilliant tales that never get told, too many voices that go unheard. The selected short stories will be published in an anthology by a local independent publisher in 2018.
