Well, I am a bridesmaid – again.
Congratulations to Jennifer Porter from Victoria who is the winner of the 2017 Tasmanian Writers’ Prize for her entry ‘The Reverend’. Judges labelled her story a ‘nearly flawless piece of writing’.
Congratulations, also, to all the other finalists. I am thrilled to be with you.
