My Brother Jack Awards 2021 open Thursday 1 July

Time to pull out that pen, open up the laptop and get ready to take your imagination for a run. The My Brother Jack Awards are back again for another bumper year.

Entries open on Thursday 1 July and prizes will be awarded for short stories and poetry in the categories of Primary, Junior Secondary, Senior Secondary and Open.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff is thrilled to see the Awards back again.

“What makes the My Brother Jack Awards so special is that it is open to everyone — from little kids to big kids, from beginners to seasoned writers,” she said.

“We can all benefit from the process of creative writing, from coming up with ideas to drafting and polishing our work, and so I encourage everyone to throw their hat into the ring and have a go.”

So if you live, work or study in Glen Eira, then get writing! Entries close Monday 6 September at 5pm. For further information, visit
