Power of Words Writing Competition

We know that Latrobe City has a strong and proud history of power generation for the state, but the City is so much more than that. Our ‘Power of Words’ writing competition aims to encourage pride in the City as well as promoting it as a place to visit, through story-telling.

The competition opens in end May and closes end August each year.

Our library collection contains a wide range of items that may help you with your research and writing. Why not visit your local branch or our website for inspiration?
