CAL Scribe Longlist Announced
Scribe Publications has announced the longlist for the 2011 CAL Scribe Fiction Prize. Launched in 2009, the CAL Scribe Fiction Prize is for unpublished manuscripts by Australian writers. The prize:
recognises that there are many examples of late bloomers when it comes to writers, certainly in terms of getting published. Youth is already celebrated in so many ways, and Scribe wants to support writers who are emerging or still going strong in their prime. It is Scribe’s intention that this prize will raise the profile of Australian fiction, demonstrate our commitment to local authors, and find a wonderful new voice and/or novel.
The longlist is:
Sally Bothroyd, ‘A Cocoa Jackson Mystery’ (NT)
Courtney Collins, ‘The Burial’ (NSW)
Richard Gosling, ‘Bear’ (NSW)
John Hughes, ‘The Remnants’ (NSW)
Lesley Jørgensen, ‘Cat and Fiddle’ (SA)
Jack Ramsay, ‘Brogan’s Crossing’ (Qld)
Dorothy Simmons, ‘Living Like a Kelly’ (Vic.)
A shortlist will be announced in the new year and the winner in February 2011..
