The annual Northern Territory Literary Awards celebrate the unpublished work of Territory writers in a range of categories.   

The NT Writers’ Centre Poetry Award will be awarded to a single poem up to 300 lines, and the winning poet will receive $1,000 as well as an NT Writers’ Centre membership and masterclass.

All writers across the NT, from our Red Centre to the Top End, whether experienced wordsmiths or just starting out, are encouraged to submit their work. Winners receive fantastic cash prizes, as well as free memberships and masterclasses with the Northern Territory Writers’ Centre.

Submissions close Monday 29 April 2019.
