Writing Contest

Hey, I’m back from Washington, DC, where I was up for a Golden Heart Award for best unpubbed YA manuscript. Big congrats to lovely Shoshana Brown, who won our category!

I’m still dreadfully jet-lagged and will some day blog about my experience o/s (hopefully before it gets lost in my sieve-like brain). But to prove the whole thing wasn’t a dream, Joanne Lockyer sent me this photo taken on the awards night. (That’s the brilliant Simone Elkeles on stage announcing my name.)

A new writing competition just opened for Australian writers. The prize is a book deal with Scribe Publications + $12,000. The catch/es – the entrant has to be 35 or over (refreshing!) and the book must not be under consideration by any other publishers or contests. An entry form and more info can be found here.
