My friend and mentor Sandy Curtis was recently presented with a Johnno Award, named after founding QWC patron David Malouf’s novel, Johnno. It is presented annually to an individual or group in recognition of their outstanding contribution to Queensland writers and writing.
Sandy has for many years been a driving force behind encouraging aspiring writers in Queensland, has served on the Qld Writers Centre Committee and established with others the Bundaberg WriteFest, which has become a key event in the Queensland writing calendar.
Sandy has six published books of her own. She was of great assistance to me in the editing process of my first novel, No Remorse. You can view Sandy’s blog here: http://sandycurtis.com/blog/
