The Jan Andrews Literary Award

MASC’s Teen Creative writing competition

This award is being launched in honour of MASC’s co-founder Jan Andrews. Jan was a storyteller and children’s author who inspired many with her stories and belief in the importance of the arts to young people.
We invite students to submit a piece of creative writing to be considered for this award, and the winner will receive 20 hours of mentorship with a professional author. The mentorship will be developed between the winner and the artist.

Thank you for your submissions.  The winner will be announced in early May

All entries will be checked for plagiarism.
