Are you a writer or do you draw pictures? Do you have a story to tell? The Dulcie Stone Writers Competition is open to Victorian residents with intellectual disability.

The theme for the 2019 competition is: Having A Say.

 What does it really mean to be able to have a say? Now is the chance to tell your story about what really matters to you.

The Dulcie Stone Writers Competition is open to and designed to showcase the voices of people with intellectual disability. The competition recognises the lifetime contribution of Dulcie Stone to services for people with intellectual disability and writing. The competition is a partnership between VALID and Writers Victoria.

Works can be of any length up to a maximum of 1,000 words or a storyboard of up to 3 x A4 pages of drawings. A storyboard is a number of squares on one page with pictures or drawings that tell a story.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm, Friday 10 May 2019.
