To all those budding young authors with a story just waiting to be written, a ‘tiny door’ of opportunity is now open for the 10th Northern Beaches Young Writers’ Competition.

General Manager - Customer and Corporate, Helen Lever said students up to and including those in Year 12 are invited to enter an original story containing the words ‘tiny door’.

“Last year, there were more than 400 entries with a high standard set. For many, all it takes to unleash the imagination and allow a story to grow is an idea and a deadline,” said Ms Lever. 

The best entries will be published in an eBook to be included in the collections of Northern Beaches Council Library and the National Library of Australia.

There will also be an opportunity for the winner to shine in the spotlight at a special awards ceremony to be held at Dee Why Council Chambers in September. 

In each age category there are awards for the winner and runner up as well as encouragement and highly commended awards.

Winning stories were submitted by students from schools including Harbord Public, Our Lady of Good Counsel, Kambora Public, Oxford Falls Grammar, NBSC Mackellar Girls and Pittwater High.

Submissions will be accepted from Wednesday 20 June to Wednesday 8 August.

Be sure to download an entry form with the competition details from the Northern Beaches Council Library website or grab a form from any one of the six Northern Beaches libraries.
