AAWP-Prize_2Together with the Australasian Association of Writing Programs (AAWP), we are pleased to announce the winner of the inaugural AAWP-UWRF Emerging Writers’ Prize.

After receiving over a hundred of submission from emerging authors on our 2016 theme – ‘Tat Tvam Asi’ or ‘I am you, you are me’ – the judges are pleased congratulate Annabel Wilson on her winning submission, ‘Quire’. Notably, Annabel’s piece was composed from journal entries based on her time in Ubud.

Annabel wins a ticket to the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF), accommodation for the duration of the festival and $500 towards economy airfares. In addition, Annabel will receive a one-year annual membership to the AAWP and fully subsidised conference fees to attend the annual conference of the AAWP, where she is invited to read from her work. ‘Quire’ is also forthcoming in Meniscus Literary Journal.
The AAWP and UWRF are thrilled to support emerging writers through this initiative. Warm wishes to all writers for diverse and original contributions, and we encourage all writers to submit again next year.
