National Year of Reading 2012 – “It’s never too late…to learn to read” writing competition ..

This is a fantastic opportunity for Australian writers – published, unpublished, student and mature age – to be part of an initiative that not only supports the National Year of Reading 2012, but also has the potential to improve the skills of the 46% of Australians who struggle with literacy.

As part of Adult Learners’ Week 2012 “It’s never too late… to learn to read” is a short story competition for unpublished, new, emerging and established Australian writers.

Published writers will have the opportunity to win a $3,000 cash prize for their work, and emerging / unpublished writers, $1,000. The judges will be looking for stories that excite, inspire and challenge audiences.
