A new book featuring the best entries submitted as part of Wyndham City’s inaugural Words of Wyndham competition has been released, and it’s a real page turner!
The Words of Wyndham Anthology 2017 was unveiled at a special event by Wyndham City’s Learning City portfolio holder, Cr Josh Gilligan.
Cr Gilligan said the book featured all of the shortlisted entries from last year’s competition.
“Last year, we held our first ever adult writing competition, Words of Wyndham. More than 400 entries were received, not only from Wyndham but throughout Australia,” Cr Gilligan said.
From short stories and poetry to flash fiction, the Words of Wyndham competition was an incredible success and an exciting way to celebrate the importance of the written word. Not only did it help uncover some truly talented local writers, it also helped to encourage more people to take up the craft.
“With the release of this anthology, the amazing shortlisted entries we received will live on and hopefully inspire future generations of writers,” Cr Gilligan said. “Congratulations to everyone involved in creating this book, especially the talented writers whose words grace the pages.”
Print copies of Words of Wyndham Anthology 2017 will be available to borrow from Wyndham City library branches.
