Chance for young writers to shine
THE South Perth Young Writers Award is now open and calling for entries from budding writers.
This prestigious literary competition, now in its 31st year, encourages excellence in creative writing and is open to all students who live in or attend school within the City of South Perth.
There are five age categories for prose and the award is open to all students from Year 1 through to Year 12.
Entry forms have been distributed to all schools within the City and are also available online and at South Perth and Manning Libraries.
Every year an anthology of winning entries is produced to recognise the achievement of our young writers.
Prizes may be awarded for first and second in each category, and certificates for highly commended works may also be awarded.
The most outstanding entry for 2017 will be awarded the Christobel Mattingley Bronze Medallion.
