Queensland Writers Centre

Ever wanted to see your name in lights?

From 30 October to 24 November 2017, Queensland Writers Centre is giving you the opportunity to publish your work and be seen by up to 300,000 people across South East Queensland.

There’s just one catch.

You can use only eight words.

How to enter

Choose from one of the following themes:

  • Change
  • Love
  • Home
  • Play

How you want to interpret the theme is entirely up to you.

Scroll down or following this link to send us your story.

Let us know your name (whether real,  pseudonym, or Twitter handle) so we can add you as an author.

Let us know your email address so we can get in touch when your story is posted.

Alternatively, if you’re on Twitter, you write your story there. Just tag us @qldwriters and hashtag #8WordStory.

If you have given us your email address, you’ll receive a message once your story is posted to this site.

Share it around. Let the world see your brilliance with 8 words.

Once posted here, your story is eligible for broadcast to a network of billboards throughout South East Queensland (thanks to goa Billboard Advertising).
