National Young Writers Month

It almost that time of year again for the Express Media National Young Writers Month. It takes place over the month of June and this year as part of the activities they are hosting a collaborative writing competition.

They are looking for 30 writers aged under 25 from 30 towns around the country who can contribut 100 words each. The final 3000 word story will be published in the September issue of Voiceworks, #90 ‘Copy/Paste’.

If you want in, you will need to email awards@expressmedia.org.au by Monday May 21 at 5pm with your name, age, and address, together with the next 100 words you would add to this story starter by Chris Currie:
It’s only ten minutes later that she’s flying down the highway, rain coming out of the dark straight towards her. There’s that creamy scoop of moon, somehow definitively clear in the corner of the windshield, staying there, statically, even as she rips another sudden swerve. If only the radio worked. If only those noises would stop coming from the boot. That damn voice. There’s another factory up ahead, abandoned but still lit up strangely. It’s nearly too late when she sees the group, huddled in the middle of the road, all their eyes turned towards her. She jams the pedal.
