Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards launches new category

This week’s launch of the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards has seen the inclusion of a new category¬†to encourage students within the Gunnedah, Narrabri and Tamworth regions to discover their love of words.

The Kurrumbede Award will go to the best poetry entry from a student living or studying within a 100km radius of Dorothea Mackellar’s second home of Gunnedah.

The Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards is a unique national project, giving Australian’s youth a voice and opportunity to strive for excellence in literature.
