Very happy to have an unpublished novel commended in the recently announced Jim Hamilton Unpublished Manuscript Award, which is part of the Federation of Australian Writers (FAW) National Literary Awards.
(A pdf of the winners in all categories can be found here).
More than anything, it is lovely to have someone, anyone, in this case the judges, read a long work from beginning to end.
Hard at work on Yack with the judges’ comments in mind.
