Calling all writers and artists!

Entries are now open to both Telescope and Kaleidoscope, two programs designed to showcase the creative talents of writers and artists with a disability.


For all Victorian writers with a disability. Whether you write fiction, non-fiction or poetry you can enter the 2015 Telescope competition. There are three categories in which you can enter – Adults (over 18), Young writers (12-17) and Groups, with each category having a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winner.
