Fire Diary shortlisted for WA Premier’s Book Award

Published : Tuesday, June 28, 2011 | Label:

I heard last week that Fire Diary has been shortlisted for the Western Australian Premier’s Book Award.

The other books on the poetry shortlist are

Caroline Caddy’s Burning Bright

Jennifer Harrison’s Colombine, New & Selected Poems

David Musgrave’s Phantom Limb

Jennifer Maiden’s Pirate Rain

Kate Lilley’s Selected Poems of Dorothy Hewett

I’m proud to keep that kind of company. David Musgrave is my publisher—a nice plot point. We don’t find out who’s won till September, but to have made such a list is already to have succeeded.

Send in your votes, though…

I’m glad to see my friends Ash Hay (fiction) and Brenda Walker (nonfiction) shortlisted, too.
