If you’re reading this and you’re under 25 (although you’re probably not, because reading isn’t as radical as pouring vodka into your eyeballs, drinking hand-sanitizer or raising a Tamagotchi) you should be aware that Express Media, that tireless champion for young writers, has an excellent thing happening during National Young Writers Month. It’s a Travelling Story, where 30 young writers (under 25) from 30 different towns around Australia will each day contribute 100 words to a collaborative story. The completed story will be published in the September Issue of Voiceworks.
It’s like those stories where you write a bit and then fold the paper over and then pass it on to the next person, but so much cooler (how can I put this, young person? It’s like The GoogleTube crossed with Alf. You remember Alf, right?)! The starting 100 words have been provided by me, and it’s your job to keep the story going! Regional writers are especially encouraged to apply, so get to it, youngsters! You’ve got until Monday, May 21 at 5pm to enter. Find out more here.
Catch you on the flipside, dudes!
