Meet the 2021 Fogarty Literary Award Shortlist

May 26, 2021

Brooke Dunnell, Patrick Marlborough and Georgia Tree each have a one-in-three chance of taking out Australia’s newest and richest literary award for young writers. In this special edition of the Fremantle Press Podcast, Marketing and Communications Manager Claire Miller chats to each of the 2021 Fogarty Literary Award shortlisted writers and invites Fremantle Press publisher, Georgia Richter, to discuss why each writer's manuscript rose to the top of the reading pile.

The episode also includes a reading from each of the shortlisted manuscripts:
The Glass House by Brooke Dunnell (South Perth)
A Horse Held at Gunpoint by Patrick Marlborough (Fremantle)
Old Boy by Georgia Tree (Mt Lawley)

The Fogarty Literary Award is a biennial prize for an unpublished manuscript by a Western Australian author aged between 18 and 35 for a work of fiction, narrative non-fiction or young adult fiction. The winner receives a cash prize of $20,000  from the Fogarty Foundation and a publishing contract with Fremantle Press.

As well as partnering with a range of organisations, the foundation has initiated its own programs that include the UWA Fogarty Scholarship Program, CoderDojo WA and Fogarty EDvance.
