2016 Tamar Valley Writer’s Festival

Are you a short story writer, getting into writing, or just love to tell people a story. The beautiful Tamar Valley has a Writer’s Festival each year that began in 2014 in the township of Beaconsfield.  March is one of the best times to visit Tasmania, as I have done over many  years. The weather seems so perfect, no matter where you are. So if you are in the mood for sharing some of your work, why not enter this competition today.

The Tamar Valley Writers Festival has a short story competition celebrating creative writing across the ages. The competition has three categories for Adult, eighteen and under, and the Tamar Valley Schools in the competition.  The entry fee for adult writers aged 18 and above is $10. Entry is free for writers under 18 years of age.

 The entry form can be downloaded from this site.
