The wonderful folk at QLD Writers Centre have banded together with local literary luminary, Rebecca Sparrow (The Girl Most Likely) to create the brilliant, Writers on Rafts project, to raise money for the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal. More than 150 Australian authors, including Nick Earls, Tara Moss, Kate Morton, Mem Fox and this Lost Shark have climbed aboard the raft to pledge their support, offering prizes such as signed books, school/book club visits, manuscript appraisals and the opportunity to be immortalised in print by having a character named after you.
So how can you get on board you ask? Well, to enter Writers on Rafts go to http://www.writersonrafts.com
From there, you can purchase as many tickets as you like in as many categories as you want! Every ticket is one chance to win for a lucky person in every state and territory. And most importantly, every dollar goes directly to the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal to help victims of the Queensland floods. The draw will be conducted on Friday February 25 and QWC’s goal is to raise $10,000 through Writers On Rafts.
So, if you can help out, please do… your support is precious in helping to raise much needed funds to support the victims of the Queensland floods.
And please… spread the word!
