In a surprise decision, Echoes by Shu Ling Chua and We are Speaking in Code by Tanya Vavilova are the joint winners of the Small Press Network’s Book of the Year (BOTY) Award. The judges said: ‘Both titles exhibit beautiful and engaging writing, genuine and heartfelt examinations of identity and culture, and nuanced explorations of their themes. Each winner also showcases experimental forms and the power of small presses to bring unique stories to the world.’
Queensland author Luke Stegemann took out the 2021 Mark and Evette Moran Literary Nib Award and the accompanying $20,000 prize for Amnesia Road: Landscape, violence and memory (NewSouth Publishing). Amnesia Road is a compelling literary examination of historic violence in rural areas of Australia and Spain, while also celebrating its beautiful landscapes. Stegemann hopes that winning the award ‘will mean Amnesia Road reaches a wider audience, as the book asks urgent questions about how we understand and make political use of, our troubled past.’ Nib People’s Choice Prize ($2,500) went to Woollahra gallery owner Tim Olsen for Son of the Brush: A memoir (Allen & Unwin).
In similar news, Still Life (Harper Collins) by Sarah Winman took out the Dymocks Book of the Year for 2021. Nominated and chosen by Dymocks booksellers around Australia, Winman’s ‘Florence setting is divine, and the characters are some of the most lovable I’ve read,’ commented Dymocks Category Manager Kate Mayor. A recent New York Times review of the book said the book ‘is a parade of small stories, intimate connections and complex characters whose lives illuminate the tedium and cataclysms of the 20th century …. Sentence after sentence, character by character, Still Life becomes poetry.’
Express Media and Deakin University congratulated winner of the 2021 Deakin Nonfiction Prize, Carly Stone on their piece, ‘A Fox Runs Out of a Bush, Jumps in the Air, and Disappears’. The beautiful essay on ‘insomnia, perspective, and truth’ is captured through ‘Carly’s sharp, original voice [which] deeply engrossed us in unfamiliar topics,’ said judges Lur Alghurabi, Briohny Doyle and Mira Schlosberg. Stone has won $1,500 and an editorial mentorship to develop their work further with Publisher of Monash University Publishing Julia Carlomangno. Stone said the work is ‘the furthest extension of my experimental practice so far.’
WestWords has been awarded the prize for Excellence in Arts and Culture at the 2021 Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence, alongside its Executive Director Michael Campbell who took out the Outstanding Business Leader title. Campbell said the two wins are ‘not just an honour for me and WestWords, but [they are] also an endorsement of the critical and fundamental roles that the Arts contributes to a thriving society, and a vibrant economy.’
Word Travels has crowned poet Huda the Goddess the Champion of the 2021 Australian Poetry Slam at Story Week in Sydney, after she performed two deeply personal poems at the annual national finals on 28 November. As a young African poet originally from Sudan, and raised in Cairo, Egypt, now residing in Brisbane, Huda said: ‘I didn’t come with the intention of winning, I came to share and to try to make people feel something.’ The win is a testament to the power of her words, from poetry covering the revolution in Sudan, to introspective thoughts about choosing life over darkness. Huda has been awarded a prize pack worth $10,000 which includes professional mentoring and performance opportunities in 2022.
Canberra pharmacist Hayley Young took home Sister in Crime’s 27th Scarlet Stiletto Short Story Awards with her outback police procedural ‘Monster Hunters’.

Accomplished Bosnian-Australian writer, Dženana Vucic has been awarded the 2022 Peter Blazey Fellowship presented by the University of Melbourne for her work A Teleology. Dženana came to Australia as a refugee from the 1992-95 Bosnian War and much of her work focuses on identity, un/belonging and language. Vucic’s work captures ‘a strikingly original reflection on how we make sense of stories and ourselves,’ praised the judges. ‘It braids personal memoir, detailed historical research and philosophical reflection in a moving work about the vagaries of memory, the complexities of identity and the vertigo of a family caught up in war.’ Vucic said the Fellowship has come at a critical juncture and will allow her the financial stability to travel around Bosnia to further her research and writing.

Composer Georgia Scott (NSW) took home the Young Artist Award ($20,000).

One of Tiwi Island’s most decorated living artists Timothy Cook (NT) was awarded the Established Artist prize ($50,000). Cook’s work embodies the visual knowledge of wulimawi and has led to a prolific career, exhibiting and curating across the country and internationally.

For the last 15 years, teacher wellbeing has been a priority area of exploration within education and positive psychology literatures. However, increasing teacher wellbeing for those who educate students impacted by trauma has yet to be comprehensively explored despite repeated exposure of teachers to child trauma and their experiences of associated negative effects such as secondary traumatic stress, vicarious traumatisation, compassion fatigue and burnout. This study follows teachers’ understandings and reflections upon their own wellbeing after learning the literatures supporting trauma-informed positive education. Interpretative phenomenological analysis was used as the methodological approach to represent teachers (N = 18) in order to privilege the language, voices and experiences of participants. Results yielded a new set of domains of trauma-informed teacher wellbeing to assist teachers to increase their own wellbeing when working with students. The likely upsurge in students and teachers across the world experiencing trauma symptoms (primary and vicarious) arising from the COVID-19 global pandemic makes this research timely and relevant.
