Viva La Novella

Viva la Novella is back for its third year.


Seizure is inviting Australian and Kiwi writers to submit their novella to be considered for this year’s prizes. In 2015 we will be looking for three writers, who will each receive $1000 and publication by Seizure.


What’s a novella? For our purposes a slim 20–50,000 words.

Why a novella?  It is a movie-length reading experience and perfect for a digital read. Longer than a short story and shorter than a novel, it’s an under-published form.

What’s the prize? $1000 + Winners will have their manuscript carefully shepherded to publication by an editor and the Seizure team. The winners’ novellas will be designed with the usual Seizure flair and unleashed worldwide in digital and printed form.


Entries close: 2 December 2014

Shortlisting: February 2015

Publishing: August 2015
