Writers of all ages are now able to enter their own short stories, narrative non-fiction memoirs or poetry in the 2022 Fisher’s Ghost Writing Prize.

The theme of this year’s competition is ‘a voice from the shadows’ which anyone who lives, works or studies in Campbelltown from grade four and above, needs to address in their writing.

“This is an initiative for creative individuals in our community to challenge themselves and showcase their talent in this exciting competition,” Mayor George Greiss said.

“Our inaugural writing prize was a great success last year and it will be interesting to see how people flesh out this year’s theme in their own, unique way”, Cr Greiss said.

Categories include:

  • Adult
  • School students grade 4-6
  • School students grade 7-9
  • School students grade 10-12

The adult category will award $300 to the winner and $100 to commended entries. Student winners will award $100 to winners.
