So you’ve handed in your assignment, the end of lockdown looms in the distance. You’re bored. What now?


The M-ASS 2020 Writing Competition is your opportunity to get recognition for your hard work! Good grades are nice, but winning prizes is better. This competition is an opportunity to share any piece you were particularly proud of with a larger audience than just your tutor.


Entries can be from any assignment you’ve done, as long as they were submitted to the University of Melbourne between Semester 2 of 2019 and now. Forgotten files sitting on your desktop could help you win some fantastic prizes our society has put together! It’s an easy process. Simply submit a completed piece of writing from a Faculty of Arts subject, be it creative or academic.


We would then love you to attend our Publishing Industry Night, which doubles as our awards evening for the Writing Competition. This event is your chance to gain invaluable insight from our esteemed guest speakers about the inner workings of the publishing industry. Ranging from authors, literary journalists and publishers, keep an eye out on our Instagram for the incredible line-up set for the night.


Please see the Terms and Conditions below for all entry requirements before submitting your work. Entries will be void if they do not comply.
