Yeah, it’s The Vox Bendigo Book 2019 Young Writers Anthology time of the year again!

I am currently designing the cover and the internal pages for The Vox Bendigo Book 2019, Young Writers Anthology. This is an initiative of the Bendigo Writer’s Festival in association with the Rotary Club Bendigo and is currently in its 4th year of publication.

The Vox Bendigo Book is a writing competition aimed at showcasing the original and talented work of young aspiring authors within the Bendigo region. It provides an opportunity for young authors to have their work published and also for their work to reach a greater audience.

The inspiring young writers are local and regional, primary and secondary school students. The anthologies feature diverse poetry and prose writing based upon a single theme. Previous year’s themes have been My Place, The Tree and Curious. This year’s theme is Gold.

I am looking forward to seeing this years ‘golden’ entries!
