Hologram is a new publishing project by Express Media. In early 2014, Hologram will publish two novella-length books by Australian writers under 30. Manuscript submissions are now open, closing on 11 August. Above everything else, Hologram is designed to put more great books into the world. It's the step between a young writer appearing in journals and publishing a full-length manuscript. Hologram is making a place for writing that's too long, too short or too weird to go elsewhere. The books will be edited and published by Johannes Jakob, supported by Express Media and a range of mentors in the publishing industry. The project is made possible through the Australia Council for the Arts' Early Career Residency program.
Submissions for the Kids Book Review Unpublished Picture Book Award close Monday 17 June. Have you got your entry in yet?
The winner will receive $300, a manuscript appraisal and the chance to have their work viewed by Sue Whiting, Publishing Manager at Walker Books! Two runners-up will win $100 each, and a short manuscript appraisal. We also reserve the right to nominate highly commended authors (no prize). A feedback sheet is provided to every entrant, upon completion of the competition.
Manuscript submissions are for picture books of 500 words or less, no illustrations required.
For submissions details and to get your entry in, head here.
Submissions must be sent by email by Monday 17 June 2013 at 11.59pm.
The QWC/Hachette Manuscript Development Program offers places for up to 10 emerging fiction and non-fiction writers to work with editors from Hachette Australia to develop high-quality manuscripts. The program will run for four days in Brisbane, Queensland. In the first two days, participants will each have an individual consultation with editors from Hachette Australia to receive feedback on their manuscript. The program will run 15 - 19 November, 2013. This program has been created for emerging Australian authors of commercial adult and young adult fiction and non-fiction. Manuscripts for adult fiction and non-fiction must be between 55,000 and 120,000 words in length. Manuscripts for young adult fiction and non-fiction must be between 50,000 and 80,000 words in length. Applications close July 1.
