Co-organised by Study Melbourne and Melbourne Writers Festival, this is a storytelling competition for onshore and offshore international students to submit their stories in written or visual forms.

Win amazing prizes by spinning a creative story that features details of life in Melbourne and includes a line “this is how my story began”.

To celebrate the diverse talents and perspectives of international students studying in Victoria, Study Melbourne and Melbourne Writers Festival are inviting students (both onshore and offshore) to submit their stories either in written or visual form. You can write, film, draw or photograph something that narrates your real or imagined story beginning in Melbourne.

A celebration will be held on 8 Sep, in person or virtually, as a MWF21 event to announce the winners, with the appearance of an acclaimed writer. This is a free event, but bookings will be required.

Friends and families can also participate to win a double pass to MWF21 by voting for the winner of the People’s Choice Category.
