Love to write? Cessnock City Library invites community members to see if they have the ‘write’ stuff and enter a short story competition to be in with a chance of taking home $100.  

The competition is open to writers of all ages with three separate divisions. The first division is for Children aged 7 to 12, the second division is Youth aged 13 to 18 and Adults 19 and over.

The theme of the story must centre on ‘Our Environment’, a broad topic giving authors the chance to craft a story no longer than 1000 words.  

Cessnock City Council’s, Library Services Coordinator Rose-Marie Walters said libraries play an important role in the nurturing and inspiring our amazing local talent.  

“Through this initiative we hope to boost the profile of creative writing in Cessnock, and encourage the development of literacy skills within our community."  

All entries must be solely your own, original work and must be received by 5pm on Friday 2 November, 2018. Please email your stories to library@cessnock.nsw.gov.au and use the subject line SHORT STORY COMPETITION. For more details visit https://bit.ly/2DvI8tK.
