2020 Peter Carey Short Story Awards Announcement

 

After a large number of high calibre entries from around Australia and the Moorabool Shire, we are thrilled to announce the winners of the Peter Carey Short Story Awards and the Moorabool Young Writers' Awards for 2020.

Given our current climate, with just over 320 entries received in the Peter Carey Awards and 116 in our Young Writers Awards, it is a fantastic tribute to both the influence of Peter Carey, the emerging junior literary talent within our shire and the wonderful world of short-storytelling.
