The Text Prize by Text Publishing (Aus, NZ)

Calling all Australian and New Zealand writers!

Submission for the 2013 Text Prize for Young Adult and Children's Writing opens on 4th March 2013 and closes on 29th March, 2013. 

Do you have a novel you would like to receive a $10,000 contract with Text Publishing for? This competition is open to all Australian and New Zealand writers, both published and unpublished, of all ages. 

Click on the link above to go to the Text Publishing website, directly to the page containing information about The Text Prize. From there, you can also download the 2013 entry form and read more information about the competition. 

I hope to give this competition a crack myself. Best of luck to any other Australians and Kiwis who want to give it a shot! I'd love to hear from you if you decide to participate and I'd be happy to chat about it as you make progress. Start writing! 

(Thank you to Greg Gorton for sending me the link in the first place.)

  1. Looks like a great competition. Good luck with it!

  2. Best of luck to you Bonnee !!
    Fighting !

  3. Good luck Bonnee. Hope you win it, you deserve it just as much as anyone else.

  4. Naturally, we all want you to win. $10,000 and published book is a dream comes true. I looked at their last five winners and most of them have interesting storyline. THE BRIDGE seems exciting. And last year ZAC & MIA is a difficult topic to write about. I can't write about a sad story of teens having cancer. The good news is that you have five months, which is a lot of time if you decide to submit your current novel. Good luck!

    1. I have heard of This Is Shyness before and it's on my to-read list. That won a few years back. I have two current ideas for what I can submit, and what's more exciting is that multiple entries are permitted. If Katherine doesn't go anywhere in the Novella competition, I can re-add all the scenes I took out to cut the word-count to under 20,000 and give it a second go. So that's one basically already written. Thanks for the support!


Have your say.
