Writers on Rafts competition

What a start to 2011. As one very witty Twit said,  it seems somebody accidentally set the Sim City preferences for Queensland to “expert.” Everyone around Australia has been doing what they can to support those affected by Queensland’s extreme weather events, and now Queensland Writers Centre, in collaboration with author Rebecca Sparrow, have developed a fantastic competition with all proceeds going towards Queensland flood survivors.

Aptly titled Writers on Rafts, the competition offers you the opportunity to win fabulous prizes donated by more than 150 Australian  authors, including Kate Morton, Morris Gleitzman, Di Morrissey, Nick Earls, Tara Moss, Mem Fox, John Birmingham, Jessica Rudd, PM Newton and many more. You could be immortalised in print with a character named after you, or read your way through a stack of signed books. You could win an author visit to your school or book club, or a manuscript assessment from a top literaryagent or publisher.

Prizes are available in four categories. You can purchase as many tickets as you like, in as many categories as you want. If your entry is drawn as a winner, you can then select the prize you want. I’m promoting this out of the goodness of my heart, even though I don’t really want to – because I want to win!!

To find out more and buy tickets, go to the Writers on Rafts website.
