Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards 2010

While you’re in the mood for poetry (April being [Inter]National Poetry month and all), you might like to think about sending your best poem in to the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards.

The theme is ‘I hear music.’ There are categories for lower primary and upper primary. And prizes from $300, plus a trophy!

You can find out more by visiting the website. Entries close 9 July 2010.
