I’m currently working with the Queensland Writers Centre to organise “Writers On Rafts” — a fundraiser for the flood victims in Queensland. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Premier’s Flood Relief Program.
For a tiny ticket price you’ll go in the draw to win:
* A personal visit to your book club OR school by one of Australia’s best loved writers
* A one-on-one writing workshop or mentoring session with a well-known writer
* A character named after you in an author’s next novel
* A high tea with some of Australia’s best loved female writers
* A whole stack of book packs, signed copies etc etc etc
* a manuscript assessment from a literary agent or publisher
So far we have over 60 writers, publishers and agents onboard including Jessica Adams, Nick Earls, John Birmingham, Kim Wilkins, Jessica Adams, Allison Rushby, Pamela Rushby, Richard Glover, Anita Heiss, Mia Freedman, Tara Moss, Sarah Wilson, Zoe Foster, Emily Jade O’Keefe, Frances Whiting, Erica Bartle, Melina Marchetta, Markus Zusak, Sara Foster, Kate Hunter, Kerri Sackville, Kylie Ladd, Steve Biddulph, Venero Armanno, Josie Montano, Richard Newsome, Pippa Masson from Curtis Brown, University of Queensland Press, Inkwell Management, Rachael & Kim from 4 Ingredients and many, many, many (you get the idea) more.
