The Jan Andrews Literary Award

MASC’s Teen Creative writing competition

This award was created to honour 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 by a jury and the winner would receive 20 hours of mentorship with a professional author.
Deadline for submission for the 2019 Jan Andrews Literary Award is Monday March 18th and the winner will be announced in early May.
