There are many ways you can honour a loved one: you may choose to install a plaque on a favourite garden seat or sponsor the care of a zoo animal in remembrance.
At Hunter Writers Centre, we would like to give you the opportunity to provide an In Memoriam prize in the Grieve Writing Competition. Your donated prize will be awarded to a poem or story submitted in the 2022 Grieve Project and will stand as a memorial to your loved one or colleague. Prizes start from $100.
If your family member or colleague loved writing, reading, worked in the arts or health, this can be the perfect way to honour them. If you are interested, complete the form below.
Here’s how it works: Our judges select, or you can select, a poem or story to be awarded your prize. This piece is then published in honour of your loved one or colleague. Here is a fictitious example showing the way we will publish your In Memoriam:

In this way you are remembering someone important to you and you are supporting Australian literature.
Each year we are thrilled to see new and emerging writers published in the anthology alongside established writers of Australia. Read a variety of past works.
Remember a beautiful life through the Grieve project and awarding quality literature in their name.
