The Matthew Hale Award is open to young writers who show promise but lack the opportunity to pursue their talent. This could be for a number of reasons, including physical or mental ill-health, family circumstances, lack of access to cultural opportunities or any other reasons.
This award is for a young person in Year 7 upwards (up to a maximum of 18 years of age). Entrants must be 18 years or under on Thursday 26 November 2020 when the awards open.
