Congratulations to Charmaine Papertalk Green, who has been shortlisted for the ALS Gold Medal for her poetry collection, Nganajungu Yagu.

The Medal was inaugurated by the Australian Literature Society, which was founded in Melbourne in 1899 and incorporated into the Association for the Study of Australian Literature in 1982. The winner receives a gold medal. No nominations are required, though ASAL members are invited to propose potential winners to the judging panel.
