This competition is open to children who are Frankston City Libraries members and who live, study or have links to Frankston.

Perhaps you want to write about a fantastical universe just outside your window? Or maybe you’ll tell us all about a mirage that appears behind your wardrobe door? The only limit is your imagination and a word limit of 500 words.

We’re accepting submissions of short stories, poetry, essays, haikus, letters and more – we’d love to read any style that takes your fancy!

Frankston City Mayor, Cr Sandra Mayer, and our libraries team will be judging across four age categories:

  • 4-7 year olds
  • 8-11 year olds
  • 12-14 years olds
  • 15-18 year olds

Entries close on Sunday 19 July at 5pm.

With great prizes up for grabs, including a $100 Robinsons voucher for the winner in each category, it’s time to let those creative juices flow.

You’ll also have the chance to see your work digitally published as an e-book on the Frankston City Libraries BorrowBox app.  PLUS, pending approval, we’ll be exhibiting a shortlist of work.

How to enter:

  1. Write your submission, based on The Time We Stayed Home, in the writing style of your choice.
  2. Head to our website to enter.

Good luck!
