The John Marsden Prize

Here at Twitch we're always on the lookout for publication opportunities for young Tasmanian writers.  With that in mind we're putting out a shameless plug for The John Marsden Prize for Young Australian Writers.

The details: the first place winner in the short story competition will receive $3000, and the winner of the poetry prize in the same age group wins $1500.  First place winners in both categories for people aged under 18 will receive $500.

This competition is a great way to put your work to the test - and we all know that when it comes to motivation, nothing works like a deadline.  Which is next Monday, September 3rd, so make sure you've got something to submit!
