INKY AWARDS

The Inky Awards Longlist has just been announced. So, who knows what the Inky Awards are? The Inkys are the brainchild of the Centre for Youth Literature. Teenagers vote for their favourite teenage books. The Inky Awards are divided into three categories - a Golden Inky for an Australian book, a Silver Inky for an international book, and the Creative Reading prize for a creative response to a book you love.

The longlist includes many novels that have been reviewed on Quicksand, such as Jarvis 24 by David Metzenthen, World Shaker by Richard Harland, The Absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie and Screw Loose by Chris Wheat.

You can find the longlist at http://www.insideadog.com.au/. Other features of the website include a regular writer-in-residence programme, and competitions ('win stuff!').
