How it works 

If you are a high school student in Years 10-12 in Queensland, we want to see your best poems and short stories. 

You may enter one poem and/or one short story, for your chance to win $100 and a one-on-one mentoring session with a current USQ English Literature or Creative and Critical Writing student. There will be six winners in total, a poetry winner and a short story winner for each year level eligible to enter. 

Before entering, remember to read the terms and conditions and our how to enter guidelines to make sure your submission is correct.
