AWAW Weekly Update

22nd June 2017

The AWAW Team keep you up-to-date on what’s happening


It’s all excitement and hard work here at Melbourne Books as we finalise the entries to be included in this year’s Award Winning Australian Writing — the Tenth Anniversary Edition! We’ve been reading submissions, narrowing them down and beginning the layout of the book.


We will post soon the final selection of AWAW 2017 contributors soon, so watch this space!


We had an overwhelming number of submissions this year — the writers and competitions really pulled out all the stops. Thank you to all those who submitted, you’ve truly made our work enjoyable!


The launch date for AWAW 2017 has been arranged for 30 August and we hope you can all make it — contributor or not. There will be readings and nibbles and of course plenty of books to buy.


In the meantime, check out what competitions are currently available by clicking on the ‘June Writing Events and Competitions’ blog post in the Writer’s Hub. There is a list of soon to close and now open competitions with links to their websites and information on what they accept.


Happy writing!
