July has seen us publishing the last of the 2017 Text Prize shortlisted authors. So we decided to check in with them all as well as with the winner on how the publishing process has been, and to see what their publishing journeys have been like over the last year.
Read a moving and lyrical extract from The Art of Taxidermy by Sharon Kernot.
Shortlisted for the 2017 Text Prize, this is an exquisitely imagined verse novel about sadness and loss, and the way art and beauty can help us make sense of it all.
As you might have guessed, at Text we’re all pretty enthusiastic readers. We can’t resist the wonders that wait within a bookshop.
So in honour of #loveyourbookshopday on Saturday 11 August, we’d like you to tell Text’s Facebook page how much you love your favourite Aussie bookshop. Then we’ll send one of them a celebratory cake on Love Your Bookshop Day!
