Local wordsmiths’ literary talents have been recognised at this year’s Northern Territory Literary Awards, with two writers receiving awards sponsored by Charles Darwin University.
The CDU Essay Award and CDU Travel Short Story Award were two of seven awards presented at the recent ceremony, which aims to acknowledge writers of different ages, backgrounds and levels of experience.
Dr Adelle Sefton-Rowston won the Essay Award for her work, “Not at the end of the world: creation stories and apocalypse in Alexis Wright’s ‘Carpentaria’ and ‘The Swan Book’.” The Travel Short Story Award was won by Barbara Eather for “Fire in the Furnace”.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Simon Maddocks presented the winners with their awards, an NT Library initiative at the ceremony in Parliament House.
The competition closely aligns with CDU’s course offerings, particularly the recently introduced major in Literary Studies.
Winners of the CDU awards received up to $1000 in cash prizes along with NT Writers’ Centre memberships and masterclasses.
The competition aims to acknowledge the high standards of writing and the exceptional literary skills of members of the NT’s thriving writers’ community.
