a win for 'picture-poetry-three'

Blue skies. Leafy bowers. Great excitement. It's the Adelaide Writers week and on Saturday 3rd March, the Premier of SA, Jay Weatherill, announced the 10 winners of the 2012 Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature.

I was thrilled to win the Carclew Fellowship, a fellowship of $15,000, which goes towards developing three projects; an historical picture book, a picture-poetry book (which Anne Spudvilas will illustrate) and an anthology of children's poems.

ps. I'm the one in black at the front!


  1. Congratulations Janeen! Look forward to hearing more about these developing projects.

  2. Thanks Claire. I'll keep you informed as they progress!
