To enter, you need to submit a work of fiction, non-fiction or poetry of up to 500 words which responds to the theme of “The Visitor” which is completely open to the author’s interpretation. Entries will be submitted online where they will be made available for the public to read and to score. The winner will receive $500 and have the opportunity to have their work published on the eBook platform, IndyReads.
The competition was designed with the pandemic in mind, as we all believe that engaging in the creative process, as well as the reading of the entries, will provide relief and entertainment during these difficult times. Although entries will need to be entered online, all of our organisations be able to assist if anyone is having any difficulty or are without access to computers. Entrants will need to be residents of Broken Hill, Central Darling Shire, Wentworth Shire or the Western Unincorporated Area, and can be any age.
Entries are now open and will need to be submitted by the 2nd of October. Judging will be open from the 9th of October to the 30th of October with the winner announced on the 13th of November.
