Power of Words Writing Competition

Our writing competition aims to encourage pride in the region as well as promoting it as a place to visit, through story-telling.  We want your stories about:

  • our people and their creativity, cultures and traditions
  • our places, scenery and settings that shine and surprise
  • our rich history and heritage
  • our gourmet delights, the quirky or the hidden gems in our midst

Stories should be non-fiction and can be written as memoir, travel-writing, creative non-fiction or biography.

First prize wins $500. Pick up an entry form and guidelines at your local library or download the information and enter online.

Entries close Wednesday 30 September 2020.
