Are you a young writer looking to enhance your career and win a nice pot of prize money in the process? Look no further. WA-based writer and editor Jess Gately explains what entering the Fogarty Literary Award could do for you.
This month you can catch fiction and narrative non-fiction publisher Georgia Richter and marketing and communications manager Claire Miller at an event at AH Bracks Library in Melville called ‘So, you want to be an author?’.
Submissions for the inaugural Fogarty Literary Award are now open. One of Australia’s richest literary awards for young writers, the Fogarty Literary Award is a biennial prize awarded to an unpublished manuscript by a Western Australian author aged between 18 and 35 for a work of fiction, narrative non-fiction or young adult fiction.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 and a publishing contract with Fremantle Press.
