I'm absolutely delighted to be judging the children's section of the Weereewa Festival Short Story Competition.
The themes for the competition revolve around the word AWEsome for student sections and AWE-inspiring for the adult section.
AWE, an acronym for ARTS, WATER (WEEREEWA), ENVIRONMENT, is the over-arching theme of the 2014 Weereewa Festival.
In conjunction with the short story competition, the Festival has established a Writer in Schools program, which I'll also be conducting at a number of regional schools. You can contact Barbie Robinson if you are interested in learning more about this.
Entries to the short story competition should be received from 1 August 2012 to 31 May 2013. Details, entry forms and conditions can be downloaded from the Festival website www.weereewafestival.org
