Who will this nationwide search unearth in 2017? What stories will explode in your mind, cause you to run onto stage, pump your fist and shout "Hell yeah! Me too!"

Judged by randomly chosen members of the crowd, one writer will be chosen to perform at the Ubud Readers & Writers Festival in Bali, Byron Writers Festival and Sydney Writers Festivals in 2018. Find out more about the artists performing at the National Final.
