Sharpen your metaphorical pencil and start brainstorming your winning idea, because entries for the 2020 SBS Emerging Writers Competition are now open.
Entries close September 15, 2020.
The SBS Emerging Writers’ Competition is your chance to kickstart your storytelling career.
Do you have a story to tell about growing up in diverse Australia? The SBS Emerging Writers’ Competition is a chance for budding writers to share their unique story and be in the running to win a prize pool of up to $10,000.
The competition writing theme is ‘growing up in diverse Australia’ which allows plenty of scope to write a memoir piece about some aspect of your formative years.
So if you are an Australian resident with a story to share, and you’re aged 18 and over (and have never published a book), hone a story and put yourself in the running.
The winner will be awarded $5000 to support the development of their storytelling. There is $3000 awarded for second place, and $1000 each for two honourable mentions. Winners and runners up will be notified on November 2 and published on the SBS Voices website.
Deadline for submissions is September 15.
