The Grieve Project believes that healing can happen through the sharing of stories.
Opening on Valentine’s Day each year the Grieve Project via the Hunter Writers Centre holds a competition in honour of Grief Awareness Month.
Competition entries may be stories up to 500 words or poems of up to 36 lines long. Winners are published in an anthology which is launched during Grief Awareness Month in August.
The top 20 works selected by the judges are read live during the launch which is also streamed online.
Palliative Care NSW is pleased to support this project and has donated $500 in prize money.
