ASA ‘My Patch of Red Dirt’ competition: entries close 19 March
The Australian Society of Authors (ASA) is running a writing competition in March, as part of Red Dirt Writers’ Week. Entries to the ‘My Patch of Red Dirt’ competition close 19 March.
Entrants must share a picture/illustration and/or description of their favourite patch of red dirt (this can be anywhere in Australia) and describe how it best relates to Sue Williams’ quote below:
‘The Outback isn’t a place on a map. It’s a place in your heart. It’s an attitude, how you treat people, a way of behaving. It’s your belief system, and how a whole nation of Australians often long for a time when life was simpler, less complicated, more genuine.’—Sue Williams, ‘Welcome to the Outback’
The competition winner, to be announced on 23 March, will receive a 12-month membership to the society and a bundle of Australian books.
