August is Grief Awareness Month
Each year, Hunter Writers Centre calls for stories and poems about grief and loss. The best 100 works are published in the annual anthology and launched in August.
The 2022 competition – the 10th anniversary – will open February 14th, 2022.
History of the Grieve Project
Since 2013, Hunter Writers Centre and our wonderful partner-sponsors have supported this publishing opportunity for first-time and published writers. Each year, Australians living here and abroad submit poems and stories/personal essays. Up to 120 works are published in the annual anthology. There is now a dedicated Grieve Project website where you can read the wonderful writings by Australians and buy the books. The competition opens on Valentine's Day each year and the anthology of selected works is launched in August (Grief Awareness month).
The team of judges work in either the grief and loss industries or are published writers. Some are both. The prizes are kindly donated by not-for-profit organisations, businesses and individuals working in or related to the grief and loss industries. Would you like to donate a prize in memory of a loved one or colleague?
We acknowledge the Awabakal and Worimi as the custodians of the lands on which we live, work and write.
