Welcome to the 2014 competition year at Peter Cowan Writers' Centre Inc. The centre runs four, national writing competitions each year: two prose competitions, the Peter Cowan 600 Short Story Competition and the Trudy Graham-Julie Lewis Literary Award for Prose; and two poetry, the Patron's Prize for Poets, and the Glen Phillips' Poetry Prize.
As each competition opens for entries, the centre will post the Competition Flyer, Rules of Entry and Entry Forms.
Please note: PCWC uses different judges each year for all our competitions. Entrants are required to use separate pen names for each entry for each competition. Each competition is judged 'blind' so the judge does not see the author's real name during the judging process to ensure impartiality. The name of the judge for each competition is announced after entries close for that competition. Please adhere to the Rules of Entry for each competition otherwise your entry will be disqualified.
