The Nan Manefield Young Writers Award is a writing prize overseen by The Stanton Library and North Sydney Council.
Young people, aged between 11 and 18 years, are invited to submit either a poem or short story of up to 750 words.
The competition is judged in five age categories by a panel of professional writers and has prizes totalling over $2,000.
All winners will also be offered the opportunity to attend a special writers masterclass.
The competition closes in May each year and will be on again next year.
