There are many fundraising events going on to assist in the flood-recovery of so many people and communities.
A great idea is one hosted by the Queensland Writers’ Centre, Writers on Rafts.
Just imagine, if you’re in the competition, you could have:
- Brian Castro or Tom Cho name one of their characters after you,
- Ben Law or Larissa Behrendt advise you on your writing,
- Markus “Book Thief” Zusak, Venero Armanno, Bettina Arndt or Nick Earls drop by your book-group, or
- Super Special Prizes!
You can check out the Writers on Rafts website for more lurid, fun detail; there are heaps of great participants.
I’ve coughed up a fair share to try for my 5 seconds of fame. Can you imagine an author having to work my name into their book? Let’s stretch those creative muscles, people!
