NYWM: Day Twenty-One

Melbourne writers, don’t forget Ilura Press are hosting their Etchings Trivia Night at the Public House in Richmond tonight. It’s a great opportunity to support independent press, while having fun and trying your hand at winning some prizes.

Express Media are proud to announce that the John Marsden Prize for Young Australian Writers is now open for 2012. With over $5,500 in prizes available this is a fantastic opportunity to enter your poetry, short story or first chapter of a novel. Entries close September 3. Details are available on the website.

For the poets in Melbourne, next Wednesday night is an open mic poetry event at the Sunflower Bookshop (434 Glenhuntly Road Elsternwick) at 7pm as part of the Glen Eira Storytelling Festival.

Today the NYWM Travelling Story is in Western Australia. Our daily writer is Jade Hu, 17, from Spearwood.
