Writers' Hub

Award Winning Australian Writing was created to showcase work that has won the multitude of writing competitions, a way to give great writing an even greater audience. This year, as we began receiving submissions for the tenth anniversary issue of AWAW, we started asking ourselves, what more can we do for Australian writing? Out of this question, the hub was born! It’s a place designed to keep writers up to date on what’s happening in the world of writing competitions. We give you the latest news on writing and poetry competitions across Australia, including entry requirements, submission dates and announcements of the winners, as well as heaps of other great resources for writers looking to be inspired and develop their craft. Connect with us on Facebook to make sure you don't miss an update.
