Randolph Stow Young Writers Awards


The 2023 Randolph Stow Young Writers Awards writing competition is now open and will run until COB Monday 3 July 2023.

The competition is open to all students from Years 3 to 12 who live or study within the Midwest as defined by the Education Department of Western Australia.

The Award provides a wonderful opportunity to encourage students in the art of creative writing. The competition is divided into two categories, poetry and prose and students are eligible to enter both categories, but only one entry is permitted for each category. Entries are to be a single piece of work written by one person.

More information about the competition including Terms and Conditions can be found on the entry form, which is available at the Geraldton and Mullewa Libraries or can be downloaded from the website under the Randolph Stow tab. Information has also been sent to schools and public libraries in the Midwest.
