The Boroondara Literary Awards are run by Council and the Rotary Club of Balwyn. Held annually since 1999, they are a great way of unearthing local talent and inspiring people to be creative. They also promote interest in books and writing across our community, particularly for young people.
The Boroondara Literary Awards include the Open Stories Competition, open to all Australian residents, for a piece 1500-3000 words.
The Young Stories Competitions are also open, with a range of awards for both Primary and Secondary School writers who live or attend school in the City of Boroondara.
Entries for the 2018 awards are now open, and close on the 31st of August at 5pm.
