Grieve is a writing project that explores storytelling across the spectrum of loss. It provides permission and a platform to write our collective and private grief out loud.

In 2023, the Hunter Writers’ Centre is unable to run Grieve as a competition and anthology of selected works.

However during August, National Grief Awareness month, the Hunter Writers’s Centre has created a small selection of Grieve offerings aimed to keep creative fires burning and deepen your creative practice. 

Whether you are new to writing about grief, or it is an established practice, we invite you to join us during National Grief Awareness Month as we explore putting words to grief and loss.

The Grieve competition and anthology of selected works will return in 2024.
