‘I may never have achieved my lifelong dream of being a published writer without Writing NSW. As a young unpublished author, I attended courses, publishing seminars, and literary festivals in its beautiful grounds, and was encouraged, inspired and taught my craft. I have now published more than 40 books in 20 countries, but I will never forget what an important influence Writing NSW had upon my career.’—bestselling author Kate Forsyth responds to the NSW state government’s decision to defund Writing NSW.
Allen & Unwin are thrilled to announce Genevieve Gannon’s bestselling book The Mothers is set to be adapted for television by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Pip Karmel in conjunction with Screen NSW and Goalpost Television.
Set in suburban Sydney, this gripping family drama was inspired by a real-life case of an IVF laboratory mix-up.
The series, filmed in Greater Sydney, will highlight major NSW talent.
Following an amazing first month of sales, Allen & Unwin have reprinted and are back in stock of the dazzling debut A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing by Jessie Tu. Since publication in July 2020, Allen & Unwin have over 20,000 copies in print.
