The 2018 Dorothy Hewett Award

If you have an unpublished manuscript sitting in a desk drawer or tucked up in a Dropbox folder, we want to read it!

 

Our third Dorothy Hewett Award for an Unpublished Manuscript closes on Tuesday 1 August. Funded by Copyright Agency and supported by media partner The Monthly, The Dorothy Hewett Award is about discovering and celebrating literary talent in WA and beyond.

 

There's $10,000 and publishing contracts to be won. The award is open to all Australian citizens with a connection (through their writing or lives) with Western Australia, and to manuscripts of fiction, narrative non-fiction and poetry, inclusive of hybrid genres.

 

For full terms and conditions, visit our awards page here.
