PUBLISHED works by writers from across the region are being sought to be entered into the 16th annual Ron Euling Award for Writing, now open for nominations.
With nominations closing on November 14, the award is for writing published in the 2014 year, whether in a book, magazine, newspaper, newsletter or any other format under the genres of poetry, prose, fiction, history, autobiography, memoir or commentary, including a series of articles.
Goulburn Valley Writers Group Vice President, Suellen Drysdale said, “The award is all about encouraging and recognising local writers who might otherwise not receive that recognition.
“Nominations for the award can be made by any member of the public on behalf of an author whose work they consider to be of special value, or by the author themselves.
“We encourage any writers or members of the community who may have read interesting works by a local writer to put in a nomination.”
Nominations can be made in writing to the Goulburn Valley Writers Group Inc., PO Box 2115, Shepparton, Victoria, via email to [email protected] or by visiting www.gvwritersgroup.com and completing the ‘contact us’ form.
