CITY of Armadale is calling all amateur adult writers living in WA to enter its inaugural Armadale Writers’ Award competition, with a prize pool of $2250 up for grabs.

Works must be original fiction, and stories need to be between 1000 and 4000 words.

Mayor Henry Zelones said the competition came about after the creative talents on show at the Armadale Writer’s Festival in April.

“The City is pleased to be able to continue to enhance and support creative arts including creative writing with this new competition,” Cr Zelones said.

“We anticipate that by opening this competition up to residents across WA, we will attract the talents of many budding writers.”

The entries will be judged by a panel of authors and librarians, with the first prize winner set to receive $1000, second prize winner $750, and third prize winner $500.
