Prime Minister’s Literary Awards Compilation – 2016 Awards Night


To have an award given by the Prime Minister is really something very exciting and I’m incredibly grateful. To actually win an award and especially win this one I think that that’s tremendously important. For me personally it’s very important it will help me write I think you know my next hopefully major biography. it just feels overwhelming it’s a few minutes after we had the announcement I just I’m still touching every part of my body to make sure that I’m actually here. Well it’s a wonderful feeling as you can imagine and like other other winners I’m quite astonished that it’s happened and very honoured. Winning the Prime Minister’s literary award for poetry is such an honour and a thrill and an extraordinary gift to even be on the shortlist with such fine poets as Les Murray and Robert Adamson The shortlisted authors all deserve to be there but we just applaud those who’ve been successful tonight these really have become an important award ceremony in the life of the nation
