History

The Salisbury Writers' Festival Writing Competition is run as part of the Salisbury Writers' Festival, a joint project between the City of Salisbury, SA Writers' Centre and the Salisbury Library Service. The competition is open to South Australian residents in two categories: Aged 17 and over; and Aged 16 and under.
