AWAW Weekly Update

29th June 2017

Hello writers and readers!

​The team at Melbourne Books working on Award Winning Australian Writing 2017 has been hard at work finalising the layout of the book and we are excited to say we will soon be publishing a list of those who will be included this year's very special Tenth Anniversary Edition!

In the meantime, we'd like to share some news relating to the Scarlet Stiletto Awards. The crime short story competition turned 24 and celebrated by announcing their new sponsor, Bonnier Publishing Australia.

'Bonnier Publishing Australia, home to Five Mile and Echo imprints, is now the proud sponsor of the $1500 first prize in the 24th Scarlet Stiletto Awards, Sisters in Crime Australia’s annual short story competition.​'

Authors such as Emma Viskic, Robin Bowles, Ruth Wykes (also featured in AWAW), Kylie Fox, Cath Ferla, LJM Owen, Lindy Cameron among others have been published by Bonnier Publishing Australia and are also members of Sisters in Crime, so it seems like a ntural partnership.
