The Boroondara Literary Awards are run in conjunction with the Boroondara Council. In 2023 we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the program. Held annually they are a great way of unearthing local talent and inspiring people to be creative. They also promote interest in books and writing across the community, particularly for young people.
Held each year in partnership with the City of Boroondara, the Awards encourage creativity in writers of all ages. The competition categories include the Young Writers competition and the Open Short Story competition. The Open Short Story competition includes the Keith Carroll Award for the best entry submitted by a Boroondara resident. As well as cash prizes, winners will have their work published in the Boroondara Literary Awards anthology.
