In honour of Grieve Awareness Month in August, the Grieve Writing Competition is now open to all Australians. With over $7000 in prizes to be won and more than 100 works published in the Grieve anthology, this is a wonderful opportunity for writers 18 years and over.

From the Hunter Writers Centre website:

“In 2013, the director of Hunter Writers Centre and a palliative care nurse specialist, who also loved to write, dreamed up the idea of calling for stories and poems to publish for Grief Awareness Month (August). Six years later and we are excited to publish another collection of your work this year.

“Each year, Australians living here and abroad submit poems up to 36 lines or stories/personal essays up to 500 words and approximately 110 works are published in the annual anthology. The 6th anthology was published in 2018.

“There is now a dedicated Grieve Project website where people around the world can read the wonderful writings by Australians.”

Entries close 8pm AEST, Wednesday 15 May 2019.
Fee for story/essay: $16.50
Fee for poetry: $16.50
Word limit is 500 maximum for prose pieces, 36 lines for poetry. This includes titles and any sub-headings. There is no minimum word count.

Find out more about how to enter your story/essay or poem via the Hunter Centre Website.

Good luck to everyone entering.
