Amanda Curtin (celebrated author of ‘Elemental’ and ‘The Sinkings’) has written this post about the disgraceful cut backs to the Premier’s Literary Awards. It is so important that we continue to fight for the recognition, validation, celebration, and financial support of writers here in Western Australia.
I’ve only read three Australian authors, but I’ve loved all three. Hope her article makes a huge splash. (“Elemental” is like a book-long lullaby.)
