How Good is The Australian Women Writers Challenge?

How good is The Australian Women Writers Challenge 2012?

Firstly, I have to say thanks to the organisers, Elizabeth Lhuede and Shelleyrae, as well as those tireless helpers like Brenda who have helped me so much in putting my books on the Challenge pages.

For the Challenge itself, it’s turned into a journey of discovery. Reviews posted by Shelleyrae and others have whetted my appetite for many enthralling volumes that would have otherwise escaped my notice. Likewise, my awareness of many outstanding  Australian women authors has skyrocketed!

In my own small way, I’m trying to promote the Challenge, both for the benefit of our writers and the community. What marvelous benefits could flow, if   greater enthusiasm for the written word could be aroused?

Spread the word: The Australian Women Writers Challenge is wonderful!

It’s been on my mind for weeks, even months. The Australian Women Writers Challenge!

And now, I’ve joined!

My first post: a piece about me and my books: received a particularly warm reception from a lovely fellow woman writer named Brenda. Positive feedback: balm to the soul!

What’s it all about?

Well, the Challenge aims to highlight and review works by contemporary Australian female writers, with the hope of recognizing and advancing both those new and established.

As a new writer, I’m thrilled at this marvelous initiative, held concurrently with the National Year of Reading 2012.
