If you live or work in the western suburbs of Melbourne, this one’s for you.
The Williamstown Literary Festival are supporting both the Ada Cambridge Prose Prize and the Ada Cambridge Poetry Prize, celebrating biographical works and emerging writers.
Short stories must be between 1000 and 3000 words and previously unpublished, and for poetry you’ve gotta keep it under 30 lines.
The prizes for these prizes are well worth it.
For the Prose Prize, $1000 will go to the winner, while the Poetry Prize winner will get $300 (not bad for about a page of words!). Both the winners and commended writers will have their stories and verse published.
Ready for the catch? There isn’t one. Entry is entirely free (woohoo, right?).
Oh wait. I lied. There is a catch. You have to live or work in Melbourne’s western suburbs… well, get to it you Melbournians, you’ve got until April 3 2013 to get your entries in. Everybody else can shake some pom-poms and send some good vibes to the people entering – go you!
