Last chance bush poets
THE final call-up for aspiring bush poets for this year’s Australian Unity Bryan Kelleher Literary Award is being recited.
Now in its fifth year, the award encourages aspiring poets to showcase their rhymes in an original bush poem, capturing the spirit of Australia and our people.
The competition pays tribute to Australian culture and the harsh colonial times of the “jolly swagman” during the 1800s.
Entries close June 29 2012. Entry is free and winners will share in over $2,500 worth of prize money. Application forms are available online at www.australianunity.com.au/ literaryaward or by calling (03) 8682 6701.
