If you love words, you will love this opportunity to meet authors, poets, historians and artists – some local and others visiting.
The Coal Creek Literary Festival will be running a number of writing competitions this year as part of the festival. The main competition will again be the Bert van Bedaf Memorial Award for the best short story. Bert was an integral part of getting the Coal Creek Literary Festival off the ground ten years ago. After Bert passed away in 2010, the open short story competition was renamed to honour his memory. The prize money has been increased to $500 and has since drawn a very high standard of entries.
