Apologies - that should (of course) be Amy Vought Barker, not black.

Not sure where that one came from . . .

Congratulations Amy!

Project Leader of Remix My Lit<http://www.remixmylit.com/> (and erstwhile CCau staffer) Amy Vought Black<http://www.writingthefringefestival.com/performer/1/?height=300&width=505> has been awarded the Emerging Writer award at this year's Queensland Premier's Literary Awards<http://creativecommons.org.au/node/www.premiers.qld.gov.au/awardsevents/awards/Queensland_Premiers_Literary_awards/2008_winners/> for her manuscript Omega Park.

It's a tale of growth and change, focusing on two teenagers living on the Gold Coast. Here's a good review<http://literaryminded.blogspot.com/2008/06/best-unpublished-books-part-one.html> from blogger Literaryminded. A few of the CCau staffers went to a reading today, and it was fabulous - I actually teared up.

Best of all, as part of the award Amy has received a publishing contract, so Omega Park will soon be on the shelves at bookshops across Australia. Watch this space for further news of Amy's sure-to-be-meteoric career.
