Walker Wednesday attracts over 1200 submissions
The Walker Wednesday open day attracted over 1200 submissions! These ranged from picture books to junior fiction to YA, with projects covering a vast array of topics. They were submitted by authors from a variety of publishing backgrounds, with nearly 50% having been published before.
‘How wonderful to see aspiring authors sharing their excitement and enthusiasm on social media at #walkerwednesday. This is a testament to just how much this opportunity means to them. No small thing at any time, but especially now. Our Walker Books Australia team cannot wait to get reading!’ says Linsay Knight, publisher at Walker Books Australia.
Walker Wednesday is a twice yearly initiative of Walker Books to encourage authors to submit unpublished manuscripts for consideration. The next Walker Wednesday is 25 November.
