The annual Woorilla Poetry Prize was the literary progeny of the Woorilla literary journal which in turn arose from the activities of the Woorilla writers’ group convened back in the nineteen eighties by Maria Millers whose Ferny Creek property at that time was known as Woorilla.
The Woorilla Poetry Prize soon established itself as a respected national poetry prize, and prize winners over the years featured the work of many academics and published authors as well as offering a proving ground for many now well renowned writers who started their writing careers in the Dandenong Ranges.

The PAVE Festival (Performing And Visual arts in Emerald) is proud to work in collaboration with Woorilla Poetry Prize.

Categories and relevant fees per poem are:

Open Age – $8 (3 entries $20), Youth (12-18) – $5 (4 entries $15)
