Challenge Completion – Australian Women Writers & Aussie Author Challenge

Aussie reading challenge completion

I’ve been a long time supporter of Aussie literary talent through hosting the Aussie Author Challenge since 2010 and annual participation in the Australian Women Writers Challenge.

So that’s 24 titles in total – 15 female and 10 male authors represented, many of them new to me, and 2 non-fiction titles – which means I have well and truly completed my Australian Women Writers Challenge and Aussie Author Challenge reading and reviewing goals for 2015!

We also had the pleasure of speaking to some of these, and other talented Aussies writers about their experiences.
