Mayor’s Writing Competition, deadline looming

Thursday 18 April 2019

The annual Mayor’s Writing Competition offers the shire’s young wordsmiths an opportunity to grow their literary talent.

With just two weeks until entries close for 2019, Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes said there was still time for young people aged five to 18 who live or go to school in the shire to get writing.

“For the past eleven years, the Mayor’s Writing Competition has encouraged and celebrated the literary talents of our young people,” Clr Innes said.

“Entries can be in any style – including short stories, poems or essays – and should be creative and unique.

“The only limitation for subject matter is that the word ‘seed’ must appear in the text at least once.”

Entries close at 5pm on Friday 3 May 2019, and the winners will be announced by Clr Innes at the Council Chambers in Moruya on Thursday 25 July 2019. Winners in each section receive a $50 book voucher while runners-up receive a $30 book voucher.

Finalists in each category receive a copy of the Mayor’s Writing Competition Anthology 2019, which will include their work.
