Young Writers Competition 2021


Extended until Sunday 5 December!

Have you written a great short story, or think you may have a fantastic idea for one?

The Maribyrnong Young Writers' Competition gives you the chance to see your story published in our annual anthology, attend our prestigious awards ceremony and win prizes!

Young writers are invited to enter their short stories, or short graphic stories into this year's competition, which is being held in partnership with Maribyrnong Libraries and the Rotary Club of Yarraville.

The competition is now open, and will close on Sunday 5 December. Entrants need to be between the ages of 6 and 16, and need to be members of Maribyrnong Libraries.
