    The Adas 2021

    Submissions are now open for The Ada Cambridge Writing Prizes (The Adas). Entries for prose and poetry are open to all writers who live in Victoria. Submissions close Wednesday 31 March 2021. Visit the website for submission guidelines.

    Our content is a labour of love, crafted by dedicated volunteers who are passionate about the west. We encourage submissions from our community, particularly stories about your own experiences, family history, local issues, your suburb, community events, local history, human interest stories, food, the arts, and environmental matters. Below are articles created by community contributors. You can find their names in the bylines.
