Public holiday: the Library will be open on 3 October. View opening hours
Last night the Library hosted the 2022 Student Literary Awards which recognised 36 talented young writers from across NSW.
This event combined two fixtures in the NSW student literary calendar: Write On, an annual writing competition for primary school students, and the Young Writers Showcase, an anthology featuring exemplary compositions by HSC English Extension 2 students.
NSW State Librarian Dr John Vallance said that he hoped the work of this year’s writers was only a beginning for them:
“With such talent across such a wide range of literary genres, the future of writing in Australia is in good hands."
Congratulations to all students who attended and received awards for their work.
If you’re a student currently doing HSC English Extension 2, make sure you bookmark this link to get a spot at our Word eXpress seminar day in November. Bookings open at 8 am on Monday 17 October 2022.
