Hachette Australia and Queensland Writers Centre (QWC) have announced their national program for writers in 2010. This round, the program is open for emerging Australian authors of both commercial adult fiction and non-fiction with manuscripts that range from 50,000 – 120,000 words.
Up to 10 emerging fiction and non-fiction writers will work with editors from Hachette Australia to develop high-quality manuscripts during a week-long intensive program held at Queensland Writers Centre in November. It’s awesome, folks – I was lucky enough to attend last year, and I can’t recommend this program highly enough.
Applications opened nationally on Monday 03 May 2010. See QWC‘s website for full guidelines and an application form.
