The Peter Cowan Writers Centre conducts four annual writing competitions:
The Peter Cowan 600 Short Story
The Trudy Graham-Julie Lewis Literary Award for Prose
The Patron’s Prize for Poets
The Glen Phillips Poetry Prize
The Peter Cowan 600 Short Story Competition was run in February and March this year. It was a great success with well over 300 entries. Unfortunately, our other prose competition the Trudy Graham-Julie Lewis Literary Award for Prose, together with our two poetry competitions the Patron’s Prize for Poets, and the Glen Phillips Poetry Prize, all had to be put on hold for this year, due to the planned refurbishment of Edith Cowan House (where the Peter Cowan Writers Centre operates from). We are very excited to be relocating back into Edith Cowan House in early 2020 and we look forward to another busy year in 2020 conducting these popular competitions.
