New season, new stories!

In the spirit of Storyfest, Courthouse Youth Arts and Central Geelong Marketing bring to you our inaugural writing competition.

We welcome all Geelong residents aged 8 – 26 who have a story to tell about Home. What does Home mean to you? Is it a place? A state of mind? A song? Is it a film? Can it be found between the pages of a book? Is it where you feel the most like yourself?

Whatever ‘Home’ may be to you, write about it in any genre you like and share it with us.

We want to hear your stories! Amazing prizes and cash rewards up for grabs!

The competition is split into three age categories.

8 – 12 / 13 – 17 / 18 – 26

*Please note that each age category has its own word limits and 3 winners (first, second and third place.)

*A 10% +/- leeway applies on all entries

8 – 12: 500 – 1,500 words

13 – 17: 1,500 – 3,000

18 – 26: 1,500 – 3,000

What is Home to you?

Entries open on Saturday 6 April. There'll be more details to come about how to enter.
