In these times, writing is becoming more and more necessary. We need to observe, imagine, remember, connect. Our stories are warnings and celebrations. All our lives, what we remember are stories. In the future, that’s how people will know about us.
Despite all the changes wrought by the pandemic, the 2020 Long Way Home Writing Competition for adults, primary students and high school students is still happening. To give everyone a chance to organise their writing lives, we have extended the deadline to July 6. Keep working on your land/marks story no matter what! See our Competitions page for more details.

The Long Way Home
This small, local, independent writing project grows more writers each year. People who don’t know they can write, become writers. Writers of all ages become published authors. Together we’re putting the Clarence Valley on the writing map.
