Eastern Regional Libraries National Poetry Writing Competion is underway again.

The competition is a great way for writers to put pen to paper and submit their work for an award.

Prizes will be awarded for:
Adult $1,000
Local Award $500 - for residents of Yarra Ranges, Knox and Maroondah
Teenage $300 - 13 to 18 years
Junior $200 - 9 to 12 years

This year's judge is Alicia Sometimes, Australian writer, poet, broadcaster and musician. Her radio show on 3RRR is Aural Text (and don't forget to subscribe to 3RRR as it's their annual radiothon). She's a poetry and science nut and is dedicated to taking poetry to fascinating places.

It's a great opportunity for budding and experienced writers alike. If you'd like to find out conditions of entry or download an entry form click here.

Entries close Friday 30 September, 2011.
