QWC Presents the Johnno Awards at Annual Xmas Celebration

Queensland Writers Centre Chair, Andrea Baldwin, and the Management Committee and Lori-Jay Ellis, CEO, and staff of QWC warmly invite you to attend our reimagined Johnno Awards and our Annual Xmas Party. 

Established in 2001, the Johnno Award is named for QWC founding patron David Malouf’s eponymous novel. Johnno is considered a seminal Queensland novel. The award is given for outstanding services to writers and writing in Queensland, particularly work that goes largely unrecognised by the public or the industry.

Come and celebrate previous Johnno Award recipients and this year’s new honouree who has been nominated by the membership and will be receiving a refreshed Johnno Award memento.

Come and sip bubbles at QWC’s Annual Xmas Party. A chance to revel in the achievement and milestones of our membership as we look back at 2018 and forward to the exciting possibilities of 2019.
