Chapter One: the AAWP Publication Pathway for Emerging Writers

Have you written a poetry collection, literary novel, short story collection, or a hybrid work that crosses genre boundaries? Enter the Australasian Association of Writing Programs’ (AAWP) ‘Chapter One’ competition for your chance to win.

If you win you will receive a written appraisal of your work from an established literary author and a letter of recommendation to the University of Western Australia Publishing (UWAP). This ‘tick of approval’ will see your manuscript assessed without delay. You will, effectively, leap to the top of the submissions pile. 

You will also receive a $500 cash prize and fully subsidised conference fees to attend the annual conference of the AAWP (November 2017) where you will read from your work.

If your full manuscript is as robust as ‘Chapter One’ you may secure a publishing contract with UWAP:
