Submissions for this year's Best Australian Science Writing are now open. We’re looking for the best pieces written for a general readership – investigative, polemical, humorous, narrative – by everyone from scientists and journalists to bloggers and students. They can be articles, posts, book extracts or essays, as long as they meet the twinned criteria of great writing and robust science. We’re also interested in hearing from novelists and poets – after all, finding a new narrative as a scientist often requires as much of a leap into the world of 'what could be' as it is an exploration of 'what is'.

Published pieces must have appeared in print or online in 2013 or 2014 – but not in an earlier BASW anthology – and the closing date for submissions is March 31. Pieces in-press will also be considered.

Please submit via basw2014[at]gmail[dot]com and please feel free contact that email address for any other information – or see http://www.newsouthpublishing.com/articles/basw-2014-call-entries/

The anthology will be edited by Ashley Hay, and published by NewSouth in November.

You can also enter the Bragg UNSW Press Prize for Science Writing, established by UNSW Press to reward the year’s best short science writing. This competition runs alongside the anthology and offers a first prize of $7000 and two runner-up awards of $1500 each. Shortlisted entries are also included in BASW2014.

The prize has slightly different entry requirements to the submissions for the anthology – see http://www.newsouthpublishing.com/scienceprize/ for details.
