Scrawl is back in its second incarnation – widened in scope, more confident in demeanor and with its general hubbub all sleek and streamlined. We received hundreds of entries last year, far more than we (or our judges) expected, which pleased us no end. We’ve tweaked the conditions and the format, but the basic tune remains the same: A strand for short fiction (your ideas in 1,200 words or less) and a strand for poetry (35 lines or less), each accepting entries from Monday the 16th of May. There are still prizes and stuff.
Any student currently at Victoria can enter, from under-grads to post-grads, as well as the weird breeds of meta-grads. See our website for entry details, prizes and the various dates involved.
Salient will be publishing the winners in their Young Artists issue, due in August, and we’ll also post them here on our blog. We’ll be posting any updates on vicbooks Facebook page, so follow us there for further news and developments (as well as other competitions and news).
