Grieve Writing Competition. Opened on 14th February with winners announced August 2019.
Each year the Hunters Writer’s Centre holds a competition for writers on the theme of grief and loss. The competition opens on Valentine’s Day each year, closes in May and the book is launched during August along with a live reading online of the top 20 works selected by the judges.
The competition is held in honour of Grief Awareness Month in August and entries are encouraged in the genres of short story and poetry.
There is a prize pool of $7,000 and last year about 110 entries were published in the 2018 Grieve Anthology.
Sponsors for Grieve in 2019 include Palliative Care NSW.
