2007 SMH Best Young Australian Novelists

The Sydney Morning Herald Best Young Australian Novelists for 2007 have been announced with 3 authors spotlighted from 18 entries. The award is to recognise the work of writers aged 35 years or younger.

The authors are Danielle Wood (Rosie Little's Cautionary Tales for Girls), Will Elliott (The Pilo Family Circus) and Tara Jane Winch (Swallow the Air) who represent a significantly deverse cross section in our literary field and are names well worth remembering (or at least jotting down somewhere).

An in-depth rundown of each author's credentials can be found on the SMH Entertainment blog which also includes an Honour Roll of past winners.
