Newsouth’s anthology, The Best Australian Science Writing, is open for submissions until the 31st March, 2015.
They are “looking for science writing from all corners and dimensions of science; from the big picture to the intimately personal; from scientists and non-scientists; from poetry to prose, and everything in between.”
They are “interested in news stories, features, blogs, opinion pieces, poems, short stories, book chapters and excerpts published since 1 January 2014. Soon-to-be published works will also be considered. Maximum length is 7000 words, but brevity is also appreciated.”
Also, in conjunction with this:
UNSW Press is calling for submission to their Bragg UNSW Press Prize for Science Writing.
First prize is $7000, and two runners-up each receive $1500. Winning entries will be included in NewSouth’s anthology, The Best Australian Science Writing.
Entries must be non-fiction written for a non-specialist audience by a single author, and have been first published in between 1 April 2014 and 31 March 2015. Previously unpublished work will not be considered.
