Parks Story Poster

In 2012, Express Media and Regional Arts Victoria, with the support of the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria and Parks Victoria, launched the 2012 Parks Story Poster publication; a combination of a story and a map that aimed to tell stories uniquely.

Young writers between 12-24 years of age were invited to submit a story (up to 1000 words) about their favourite Parks Victoria park for their chance to get published and paid for their short fiction.

The competition encouraged students to think about place, identity and direction while writing, and gave them the opportunity to have their creative fiction published.
