2009 John Marsden Prize for Young Australian Writers


George Dunford has written to let me know about the 2009 John Mardsen Prize for Young Writers that is run by "Express Media". According to the website:

Poetry and short story winners under 18 will receive $500 each. 18-24 year olds in first place will gain $2500 for short story and $1000 for poetry.

All first place winners will be printed in the December issue of Voiceworks.
Second and third place winners, and those with honourable mention will be published on the Express Media website.

Entry is now free for all applicants under 18.
And for 18 -24 year olds, the $10 entry fee includes free Express Media Membership plus an exclusive monthly newsletter on events, grants and competitions.

Entries close 5pm Friday 28th August, 2009.

Entry forms are available on the website as well.


hey guys. when are the winners of this years (2009) john marsden comp announced? i entered this year and im dying to know when the winners are announced. i checked the exress media site and it doesnt say a thing about the announcement.

I can't find a date when winners will be notified anywhere, but the Youth Central website (http://www.youthcentral.vic.gov.au/ViewPage.action?&repositoryName=&siteNodeId=757&CurrentFolderID=2911&ItemID=12747) states that the winners will be published in the December issue of "Voiceworks". So you'd have to think that they'll work out the winners by about the end of this month. But that's purely conjecture on my part.
