‘Read This’ Competition
April 2nd, 2012
Got a favourite book? How would you go about convincing your friends to read it?
The National Year of Reading, the State Library of Victoria and Good Reading Magazine are having a competition for residents of Australia aged between 12 and 18 years. Here’s the link – you can get the competition details and see some of the entries that people have already sent in. Note that you have to enter online.
There are prizes in each state as well as a national prize, and you can enter as yourself or as part of a team. I’m one of the Tasmanian judges (but don’t send your entries to me!), and I know from the quignog competition I held a while back that there are a lot of very creative people out there, so I’m looking forward to it.
I can’t enter of course (waaaaay too old 😀 ) but I’ve been thinking about which book I would do if I could enter, and whether I would write a story or paint a picture or what. Haven’t decided yet. How about you?
Lian Tanner has been dynamited while scuba diving and arrested while busking. She once spent a week in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, hunting for a Japanese soldier left over from the Second World War. Nowadays she lives by the beach in southern Tasmania with a large fluffy tomcat called Harry-le-beau.More about Lian
