The Rosie Project is the Book of the Year (and we're the Small Publisher of the Year)!

It's been an awards-filled few weeks for Text! Here are some of the wonderful literary prizes and shortlistings our authors have recently received:
  • Clare Wright won the 2014 Stella Prize for her outstanding history of the Eureka Stockade, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka
  • Cory Taylor's My Beautiful Enemy was shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award, the most prestigious literary prize in Australia
  • A. J. Betts' Zac & Mia won the Ethel Turner Prize for Young People's Literature in the NSW Premier's Literary Awards
  • Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project won both General Fiction Book of the Year and overall Book of the Year in the 2014 ABIA Awards
  • We were named Small Publisher of the Year at the ABIAs, for the third time in a row
If you need any of us, we'll be resting on our laurels...for about two minutes, then we'll be hard at work again.
