Our lovely friends at 40° South, in partnership with the Tasmanian Association for the Teaching of English, have set their sights on the younger generation to unearth some fresh new writing talent. The Young Tasmanian Writers' Prize, a short story competition for Tassie students in grades 7 to 12, was held for the first time this year, attracting 99 entries from 29 schools around the state.

Entries will be judged by some of our favourite Tasmanian writers (think Lian Tanner, Kate Gordon...) with the winners to be announced in July. Make sure to get your hands on a copy of the September edition of Tasmania 40°South magazine to read the winning stories!
