National Year of Reading 2012 “It’s never too late to learn … to read” writing competition
IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN……….TO READ
National Year of Reading patron William McInnes and Mary Delahunty, national director of Writing Australia, announced the winners of the National Year of Reading It’s Never Too Late … To Learn To Read competition at our soft launch event on 1 September. The prize is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR), through Adult Learners’ Week National Grant Funding. The winning stories can be found on the NYR website. We had a fantastic response – more than 280 entries, all of a very high standard were received. Thank you too to the teams at the Tasmanian Writers Centre and Writing Australia, who managed the competition so professionally.
