Storylines award

Me&JacindaI was at the Storylines Margaret Mahy Awards Day yesterday and won the Tessa Duder Award for an unpublished manuscript. While there, I happened to shamelessly cadge a photo from our PM (my heroine).

One thing that really struck me yesterday was the sheer amount of female talent in the place – I was blown away by all that womanly writing and publishing. The line-ups on the stage for the Notable Book Awards: nearly all women. The Storylines organisation is run by strong and talented women … and look at One Tree House (my publisher): Christine and Jenny are dynamos, and have just picked up a major publishing award at the Bologna childrens book festival. I was very impressed by the sheer energy in the place yesterday. So fitting that we had the strong and positive Jacinda to speak to us and give the MM medal.
