Chance for young writ­ers to shine

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

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.
