The effort to recover from this wet season will require a whole lot of love, tenacity, and money, so Queensland Writers Centre (QWC) has gathered a group of the most determined writers we could find and we’ve built them a raft.
More than 130 writers and writing organisations are on board including Nick Earls, Kate Morton, Tara Moss, Kim Wilkins, Emily Jade O’Keeffe, Frances Whiting, Jessica Rudd, Kate Hunter, Marianne de Pierres, PM Newton, and Venero Armanno, and Sydney Writers’ Festival, Byron Bay Writers Festival and Melbourne Writers Festival, who are all donating books, workshops, author talks, lunches and editorial to winners of QWC’s Writers on Rafts initiative.
100 Stories for Queensland is a charity anthology looking for stories. 100% of the sales profit will be donated. Deadline is Friday 28th of January.
Books2Flood: Many creches, kindergartens and childcare centres have lost a lot of resources in the 2011 floods, including precious books. We hope to connect these needy centres with publishers willing to support them with book donations. Organised by Brisbane author Nick Earls, Riverbend Books staff & the book industry.
