NYWM: Day Thirty

Sadly, this is our last daily blog post as today is the final day of National Young Writers’ Month. It has been an epic month, with 30 writers all over Australia collaborating to write a Travelling Story to be featured in the next edition of Voiceworks, our National Young Writers’ Group on Facebook reaching over 400 members, our online collaborative story taking weird and wonderful twists, articles in Arts Hub and elsewhere and, most importantly, lots of writing goals achieved (we hope). So tell us… how did your National Young Writers’ Month go? Did you reach your goal? Link to your work or share your experiences below.

Before we leave you, there are just a few more things to share…

Adelaide, don’t forget today is the final day for applications to The Writing Project.

In NSW today is the last day for entries to the FAW Manly and Peninsula Branch Writing Competition and the 4th Oberon Writers’ Competition.

It’s also the last day for entries to the Poetry in Film Festival.

And finally, please join the Express Media mailing list to keep updated on opportunities for young writers all over the country. National Young Writers’ Month may have drawn to a close, but Express Media are here all year round.

Today the NYWM Travelling Story finishes up in Victoria. Our last daily writer is Jessica Barlow, 21, from North Ballarat. Look out for our next issue of Voiceworks, where you can read the full story.
