The writingWA team would like to express our thanks to everyone who has reached out to us with messages of congratulations since the news was first announced that State Government funding would be continued for 2018 and 2019. (See post below).
While we have been attempting to respond to each of you individually, to let you know just how much we appreciate your support, the sheer volume of emails has overwhelmed us. We would therefore like to send this collective and heartfelt thanks to you all. It is truly a privilege to be part of such a collegial community. Thank you.
We are looking towards 2018 with fresh vigour, having received confirmation in late December of renewed State Government funding to writingWA for 2018 and 2019.Our sincere thanks go to Minister Templeman and the staff of his Ministerial Office and Culture and the Arts for maintaining the government's investment in writingWA, and to you, our sector colleagues, for your ongoing support and advocacy.
Congratulations to Rafeif Ismail, winner of 2017 Deborah Cass Prize for Writing for Almitra Amongst Ghosts.
