The Department of Communities and Justice together with the Fellowship of Australian Writers Inc (FAW) is conducting an exciting FREE short story writing competition for Seniors Card and Senior Savers Card holders. 
The Prize is publication in their next book, Seniors’ Stories Volume 10.


Workshops are conducted primarily to encourage Seniors to draw on their story ideas, create new ideas, and if unsure how to write them as a publishable short story they will gain the motivation, inspiration and tools to help them.
