Writing competitions provide a great way to develop and share your stories. The NSW Government’s Seniors Card is running their short story competition again in 2018. Selected stories get published in a compilation called ‘Seniors’ Stories’ which makes for highly entertaining reading. This year they are collaborating with the FAWNSW to run and judge the competition, so head to the FAWNSW website for details and entry form. You need to be a holder of a NSW Seniors Card to enter. The theme is ‘Positive Ageing’ and the word limit is 1,000 words. The closing date is midnight on Friday 1st June 2018.
FAWNSW has been running two-hour workshops throughout NSW to support people who are thinking about entering a story. We have one coming up locally on Saturday 14th April at 1pm in the Toronto Community Centenary Hub and there’s another in Sydney in the Macquarie Room of the NSW State Library on Monday 16th April at 10.30am. To book your place at a workshop, please send an email to Maureen Kelly (FAWNSW Communications Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone her on 0417 403 720.
