Competitions for Students

This is an early heads up!

The Somerset Celebration of Literature will take place in March 2017. Yes that is a while away however as part of the celebrations there are two writing competitions open to school age students and they are both open for submissions now. The competitions are The Somerset National Poetry Prize and The Somerset National Novella Writing Competition.
The purpose of the Somerset National Poetry Prize is to encourage a love of writing poetry amongst secondary school students, to affirm it as a worthwhile literary pursuit, and to stimulate excellence in writing. It also aims to inspire and enrich youth literature.
The Somerset National Novella Writing Competition is open to all Australian high school students. It is a wonderful opportunity for serious student writers, encouraging them in their literary growth - and there are also some fantastic prizes on offer!
More information can be found by visiting their website HERE.
