2017 Australian Women Writers Challenge

aww2017badgeThe Australian Women Writers Challenge has been running since 2012, with the aim of combating the gender bias prevalent in the Australian publishing industry.

I first joined in 2016, with the aim to read and review 12 books by AWWs, including two by indigenous authors and two by LGBTI* authors. While I didn’t quite succeed on the LGBTI* front (I left it too late, and then didn’t end up liking one of the books I had selected enough to finish it), I did succeed on the other fronts, and ended up reviewing 16 books by Australian Women.

This year I have set myself the same challenge, and plan to do better on the diversity front.

The following list is the titles I have read for the 2017 AWW Challenge, and links to the reviews.
