QWC / Hachette Australia Manuscript Development Program
If you were racing around like a mad man trying to finish your manuscript or even if you were curled up in the foetal position on your floor because your suffering the dreaded case of writers blockâ€“ take a deep breath and start running around your house, screaming excitedly. Â The deadline for the QWC/Hachette Australian Manuscript Development Program has been extended!
The new dead line is 5:00pm Friday, July 12th.
For those of you who werenâ€™t too worried about finishing or making progress on your manuscript, I suggest you get a move on and get writing.
The QWC/Hachette Australian Manuscript Development Program offers up to 10 emerging fiction and non-fiction writers the chance to working with editors from Hachette Australia to develop high-quality manuscripts.
Queensland Writers Centre Chief Executive Officer, Meg Vann has said, â€œThis program is any emerging writersâ€™ best chance at trade publication, since it strengthens not just the manuscript, but the author. It builds networks and knowledge that kick-start a writing career.
â€œThe opportunity for writers to immerse themselves in the world of publishing is so rare â€“ again and again, I have seen this program transform writersâ€™ lives.â€
Make sure you check over the application guidelines before delivering* your manuscript and check, double check and triple check your application form.

*Applications must be delivered by the deadline. Electronic submissions will be not be considered.
