As many of you no doubt know, each year the Wheeler Centre offers 'Hot Desk Fellowships' for emerging writers. Yesterday morning, the winners were announced:
Twenty lucky writers were chosen by a selection panel that included representatives from the Wheeler Centre and our resident organisations: Melbourne Writers Festival, Emerging Writers Festival, SPUNC, Australian Poetry, Express Media, Writers Victoria and Melbourne PEN.
