Organisers of The Blackened Billy Verse Competition
After our exciting Silver Anniversary year in 2015, which was won by Brenda Joy of Charters Towers, we now settle back around the campfire and see what wonderful poetry the billy can bubble up for 2016.
Writers of Bush Verse are invited to compete in the 2016 Blackened Billy Verse Competition.
First Prize is $600 plus the much loved Blackened Billy Trophy, Second prize is $300 and Third prize is $200.
Bush poetry is a traditional type of verse written with rhyme and rhythm that reflects the Australian way of life. The genre has widened in recent years to encompass modern living in both the city and the bush.
