The Sydney Morning Herald’s ‘Young Writer of the Year’ competition is a fantastic opportunity for emerging writers to showcase their talent. This competition is currently in its 25th year!
Students must submit an original work between 700 and 1000 words in length on any topic or theme. The work must have been written in 2010 and must incorporate the Young Writer Trigger in some way. The Trigger for 2010 is SILVER.
