Today, the Minister for Culture and the Arts David Templeman announced the shortlists for the Western Australian Premier's Book Awards. The Emerging Writer shortlist is filled with stories about hearts laid bare. The Fellowship nominees are a mix of poets, a teacher, a researcher, a curator, an environmentalist and a children's author.
The awards that support, develop and recognise excellence in Western Australian writing will be presented at the State Library of Western Australia on 17 June 2022. At the ceremony, a Western Australian writer will be inducted into the Writers Hall of Fame.
The Daisy Utemorrah Award for Unpublished Indigenous Junior and Young Adult Writing is open to Indigenous writers from across Australia. This award is administered by Broome-based Indigenous publisher Magabala Books with support from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
