Competitions:
$500 Writers Prize

The Coal Creek Literary Festival will be running a number of writing competitions this year as part of the festival. The main competition will again be the Bert van Bedaf Memorial Award for the best short story. Bert was an integral part of getting the Coal Creek Literary Festival off the ground ten years ago. After Bert passed away in 2010, the open short story competition was renamed to honour his memory. The prize money was increased to $500 and has since drawn a very high standard of entries.

Past winning entries have been posted on the Coal Creek Literary Festival website.
https://coalcreekcommunityparkandmuseum.com/literary-festival/.
The competition is open to anyone with an imagination, a pen and paper or word processing program. You can enter as many times as you like, each entry must pay an entry fee.
Competition entry Fee is $15

The festival will also be running an Open Poetry competition which offers a $200 prize
Competition entry fee for this is $10

Now entering its seventh year, the Bert van Bedaf award has proved to be a very popular part of the Coal Creek Literary Festival with entries coming from all over Australia. Entry forms can be downloaded from the Coal Creek Literary Festival website or can be picked up from Coal Creek Community Park & Museum in Korumburra. Conditions and entry fees are all on the entry form.

So if you have a story crawling around in your head, something Grandpa did as a kid or a weird dream crying out for a meaning, get it down on paper and send it in. It could be worth $500.

Entries close Friday 28 September 2018
