Tell us a story...

The Campus Writing Comp was launched in 2019 to celebrate the talents of student writers, regardless of their location of field of study.

Students from eligible campuses across Australia are invited to submit their Fiction and/or Non-Fiction work to be seen by a panel of industry professionals for the opportunity to win industry-relevant prizes and experiences.

This is your shot at getting your writing recognised!

      Each year the Tertiary Action Group (TAG) give away thousands of dollars of prizes to talented students either through Major Prizes, People’s Choice or monthly Instagram give-aways – visit the Campus Writing Competition website for all information.
