Congratulations to Elizabeth Kasmer

"At the 2015 Queensland Literary Awards my young adult manuscript Aurora was awarded the Emerging Queensland Writer – Manuscript Award.

The prize includes publication with University of Queensland Press (UQP) and the book is due to come out around September next year.

Being awarded a Varuna Fellowship and spending time at Varuna this year was a huge confidence booster. It helped not only to take myself seriously as a writer but also gave me the opportunity to meet and connect with other fantastic writers."
