‘Publishers are talking about how much bigger audio is and how much they need to have it, but they’re having their cake and eating it if advances aren’t any different and [the value of audio is] not reflected in what’s offered.’—Literary agent Julia Silk believes publishers need to up their game for audio rights in an increasingly competitive market.
The Wheeler Centre would like to invite you to join the Wheeler Centre Board and VIPs for the launch of our exciting new writers’ scheme, The Next Chapter.
Presented by the Wheeler Centre and supported by the Aesop Foundation, The Next Chapter aims to find the Australian stories that aren’t being told—the voices we’re not hearing—by supporting a new generation of writers, from all sorts of backgrounds. The scheme gives writers the time, support and space they need to develop their work.
Each year, we’ll pick 10 outstanding writers from around Australia and give them $15,000 each to develop their work. We’ll match them with a mentor, and work with them over 12 months and beyond to connect them to publishers and readers.
Across the country—in our regions, in our suburbs, in our cities—we know there are aspiring writers with stories to tell, and we’re looking forward to unearthing them.
Event: The Next Chapter launch
Date: Thursday 3 May, 7.30pm-9.30pm
Location: Handpicked Cellar Door, 50 Kensington Street, Chippendale NSW 2008
Bookings: To RSVP, please email the Wheeler Centre by 5pm Tuesday, 1 May.
