Bunbury's writing for performance competition and festival is now open to entrants of all ages from across Australia!
Shore Lines is an annual competition and festival providing a unique opportunity for writers to present their work to a live audience. If you like to write and would like your work performed, then Shore Lines is for you. The competition calls for written entries that will be judged on the quality of the writing and its suitability for performance. They encourage a wide range of genres including monologues, poems, plays, songs, stories, comedy, hip hop or rap.
There are categories for Primary School age, Secondary School age, and Open.
The writing competition is open until Wednesday 31 August 2016.
