Dulcie Stone Writers Competition

Do you have a story to tell?

Are you a writer or do you draw pictures?

Dulcie Stone was a disability advocate from Victoria. She was a big supporter of people with intellectual disability and writing. VALID created the Dulcie Stone Writers Competition to remember Dulcie and to encourage people with an intellectual disability to be creative.

Together with Writers Victoria and Inclusion Australia we are expanding the competition so that anyone with an intellectual disability in Australia can take part.

You can choose what you want to write about

  • Something important to you, like your friends and family
  • Your community
  • A made up story
  • Or something else

There is a first prize of $500. There is also $200 for the best entry in each state!

The closing date is 30 September 2023.
