Do the Write Thing: Get Creative in Carnegie

By Matt Hurlston

Parents of budding writers and poets living in Carnegie, Bentleigh East or Murrumbeena real estate may encourage their children to enter the My Brother Jack Awards 2014.

The annual awards are open to anyone living, studying or working in the Glen Eira area, with categories for primary and secondary school children as well as open-age categories. 

Entries opened last week and close on April 28, giving those with vivid imaginations a chance to demonstrate their short story and poetry skills.

There's also a photographic award sponsored by the City of Glen Eira, which is open to all ages. The winner receives a $200 prize. 

Meanwhile, prizes for the short story and poetry categories vary, with a range of book prizes as well as a cash prize for the open poetry category. The categories available for both poets and short story writers are primary, junior secondary, senior secondary and open.

Not only will entrants get to flex their creative muscle, but also have the opportunity to attend the awards ceremony at the Glen Eira Town Hall should they win. 

The awards will be presented on June 22. Entries can be submitted via the City of Glen Eira website.

With engaging council initiatives offered, it's no wonder families look to real estate in Bentleigh East and Carnegie to raise their kids. 

If you're thinking of a fresh change for your family, contact Matt Hurlston at Ray White Carnegie.
