Mandy Beaumont shortlisted in '2019 Dorothy Hewett Award for an Unpublished Manuscript'

November 15, 2018

Congratulations to JdM author Mandy Beaumont, whose ‘She is Bright Light and All Brilliance’ is shortlisted in yet another prestigious unpublished manuscript award, this time UWA Publishing’s Dorothy Hewett Award!

The judges call it; “… a dazzling collection of short stories spinning around the lives of women (and men) in love and in the sometimes desperate state of sexual desire and fulfillment. It is a beautiful, dangerous dance of longing, where lives can be made complete when it goes well.”

This same short-story manuscript from Mandy (now renamed Wild, Fearless Chests) was also shortlisted in Hachette’s Richell Prize earlier this year.
