Tell Mary’s Tales Poetry and Prose

‘Tell Mary’s Tales’ Poetry and Prose is a feature of this year’s Mary River Month which started on World Rivers Day, Sunday 24th September.

Send in your musings as rhyming poetry, free verse or prose (not short story or essay) as inspired by the Mary River, one of her creeks, or any another aspect of the Mary River catchment

The closing date for submissions will be 3rd November.  Entries are limited to one A4 page (1.5 spacing, 12 font) and a small photo of the area that inspired the work (optional).

All submissions will be numbered and displayed in a presentation folder on the MRCCC stand at the Festival with a selection of the entries presented in person.  Two numbers will be drawn out of the hat and the entrants will be presented with either a framed photo by Bob Simpson, or a copy of Tim Heard’s Australian Native Bee Book.  Click here for a copy of the entry form.
