Entries open for 2018 Mayor’s Writing Competition

The time is right for Eurobodalla’s budding young writers to put pen to paper for the 2018 Mayor’s Writing Competition.

In its tenth year, the competition celebrates and encourages the literary talents of local youth, offering great prizes and the opportunity for students to have their work published.

Shortlisted writers in each category finalists will receive a copy of the Mayor’s Writing Competition Anthology 2018, which will include their work.

The competition is open to writers aged between five and 18 who live or go to school in Eurobodalla.

The theme this year is ‘time’ and all writing submitted must incorporate the word ‘time’ in the text.

Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes said the competition was a much-loved event in the shire’s calendar.

“We’d love for young people to get writing, to be creative and have fun,” she said.

“The judges will be looking for imaginative writing with a unique plot. Entries can be in any style of creative writing, including short stories, poetry and essays.”

For entry forms and for more information visit Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma libraries or Council's website,

Entries close Friday 4 May 2018 at 5pm. Clr Innes will announce the winners in the Council Chambers on Thursday 26 July 2018.
