There were 209 entries in the inaugural Buzz Words short story Prize which has prize-money of $1,500. The following stories have been long-listed by Dianne Bates and Bill Condon and sent to judge Cathie Tasker who has the task of creating a short-list of ten to be sent to finalist judge, Jackie French.
