Wild at heart, wild abandon, a wild card, wildest dreams, walk on the wild side, run wild, wild-goose chase, wild horses, go wild, a wild child...

The Northern Beaches Young Writers’ Competition 2019 is now open.

Write an original story using this year’s theme word ‘wild’ for a chance to be published as an author in a Library eBook.

Entries close Wednesday 7 August.

The Competition is open to students up to and including Year 12 who are members of the Northern Beaches library service.  Not a member of the library? You can join online or at your local library.

How to enter

Complete the online entry form and attach your story as a Word document or PDF, or print out an entry form (see documents below) and take your story to any Northern Beaches Council library branch.

Entries will be judged according to characterisation, originality, plot and use of language, and will be arranged into six different age group categories.

Winners from each category will be presented with an award at a ceremony on Thursday 19 September.

Winners will also have their stories published in an eBook to be included in the Northern Beaches Council Library collection.
