Congratulations, Mandurian Stories Contributors!

November 18, 2019

Congratulations to the wonderful people who contributed to Mandurian Stories this year. You have all received a High Commendation in FYA's Unleashed Awards, and I am so thrilled to be able to share this exciting news with you.

Here is a short clip from the Unleashed Awards ceremony, held at Melbourne Town Hall.

I wish all of you could have attended, but I was grateful to be able to be there to accept the award on behalf of everyone who contributed to our awesome anthology. 


You can read more about the awards night here.


I am so proud of what we are accomplishing for each other, and for our community, and I hope you are all as excited as I am about Mandurian Stories 2020!


Well done, Mandurian Storytellers, and congratulations to all of you!

I would also like to say thank you to the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) for supporting young people all over Australia, including myself, in a variety of amazing ways. 


Being part of the Unleashed Awards was a magical experience, and I really appreciated being able to attend.
