Sophie Hamley from Hachette has chosen three Northern Territory writers whose manuscripts will benefit from a mentorship.
Big congratulations to Karen Manton and Sylvia Hurse from Darwin, and Renee McBryde from Alice Springs.
17 people applied for the mentorship – with works ranging from non-fiction to rural romance and literary fiction – and nine were chosen for the short list.
Sophie says it was extremely difficult to make a decision due to the high quality of all the applications, so that’s why she’s chosen three writers to mentor as they do the next drafts of their work.
The NT Writers’ Centre would like to congratulate all the applicants, and thank Sophie for offering this great opportunity to its members.
