Boroondara Literary Awards

The Boroondara Literary Awards are run by Council and the Rotary Club of Balwyn.

Held annually since 1999, they are a great way of unearthing local talent and inspiring people to be creative. They also promote interest in books and writing across our community, particularly for young people.
