Natalie Fraser - Writing for Awards
Saturday 17 June 2023 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM (UTC+10)
Australia has a relatively small publishing industry and it is often difficult for new writers to break into. That's why it's good to think about entering writing awards as a way of getting your work out there!
This session will examine the awards on offer both in Australia and overseas and examine some specific examples of awards and where to find them. Other things to consider include prize money, entry fees, submission guidelines, judges, author anonymity.
Natalie Fraser is a Geelong West based writer of short stories, essays, and memoir.
