It’s no secret that Queensland has great weather and fantastic beaches, but a prolific writing community? Well, that’s not so well known.
The Queensland Writers Centre is aiming to change that with its annual Books From Our Backyard catalogue – packed full of books published by Queensland authors.
The QWC kicked off this year’s campaign with a celebration at the State Library of Queensland last night, led by one of Queensland’s best-loved writers – Nick Earls.
Nick’s message: Read more books by Queenslanders.
I can’t argue with that!
Each year the QWC will produce a resource that details books written by Queenslanders that will be available to Australian readers, booksellers, and libraries.
The booklet covers every genre and includes brand new authors and seasoned storytellers. You can download the full booklet here.
