Bendigo Writers Festival: Writing Submission

Bendigo Writers Festival 2016

The Vox Bendigo Book


Bendigo Writers Festival in association with The Rotary Club of Bendigo invites your school to enter students’ writing for the chance to be published in THE VOX BENDIGO BOOK: YOUNG WRITERS ANTHOLOGY.

The theme is MY PLACE. Submissions of any kind of writing – stories, poems or prose – can be up to 1000 words and there is no minimum word limit.

A place you love to visit, a place you remember that has changed, a place that is private and special or a place that is important to the whole community. Describe that place, or tell a story about it.

Use your imagination or research a place you are curious about. We’re looking for writing that is lively, thoughtful and entertaining.

All entries must be submitted by the end of Term 1, Thursday 24 March.

THE VOX BENDIGO BOOK: YOUNG WRITERS ANTHOLOGY will be published by Bendigo Publishing and launched at Bendigo Writers Festival’s Text Marks the Spot schools program
on Friday August 12, 2016.
