A new year, and time to sign up to the Australian Women Writers Challenge for 2014. It’s the third year that I’ve been involved in this, and its website is turning into a handy little resource for reviews on Australian women’s writing.
The challenge was provoked by the Miles Franklin shortlist of a few years ago that was comprised solely of male writers. I strongly suspect that a similar situation may arise again this year with the Holy Trinity of Franklin, Winton and Tsiolkas all releasing books during 2013. We shall see.
Anyway, I’m in again.
