The Hope Prize, the Brotherhood of St Laurence’s national short story competition, encourages writers to explore the theme of resilience in the face of adversity. 

The Brotherhood was overwhelmed by nearly 900 stories, and a new anthology Hope Shines showcases the best of this work. The winning stories were selected by judges actor Cate Blanchett, former Governor General Quentin Bryce and author Kate Grenville.

We are thankful for the generosity of the late Prudence Myer and support of her family, as well as the support of our publishing partner Simon & Schuster and leading book retailer Readings.

If you have any questions, please contact events(at)bsl.org.au

Book royalties will be donated to the Brotherhood of St Laurence.
