Hungerford workshop: polishing a manuscript for publication

With submissions to the City of Fremantle T.A.G. Hungerford Award opening on Friday 2 February and closing on Friday 16 March, this workshop is perfectly timed to help you get your manuscript into shape with the help of author and editor Deb Fitzpatrick.
Since 2012, more than 25,000 refugees from Africa and the Middle East have arrived in the Italian island of Lampedusa seeking asylum. Mariella Bertelli has visited the island now 5 times, helping IBBY, the International Board of Books for Young People, and IBBY Italia, create a library for local and immigrant children. Mariella was in Lampedusa this winter, working with local high school students to translate Stormy Seas into Italian. She believes that Lampedusa, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, is a very symbolic place in the world. Having the young people of Lampedusa translating Stormy Seas brings added value to the translation, because of their unique perspective and experience. The students and Mariella shared updates throughout the project in English and Italian.

The judges greatly appreciated this exploration of the deep roots of the Corbyn phenomenon. In The Candidate, Nunns shows that Corbyn’s victories weren’t the accidental consequence of other candidates’ failures, but were built on the work of an energised, thoughtful and committed movement of citizen-campaigners."
