The 2005 "Australian"/Vogel Literary Award Shortlist

The shortlist for the 2005 "Australian"/Vogel Literary Award has now been announced. The award of $20,000 is presented to an Australian-resident writer under 35 years of age for an original unpublished manuscript of fiction or Australian history or biography. The shortlisted works are:

Blue by Christina Armstrong
Trevalyan by Natalie Kershaw
Crossing Against the Red by Stephen Martin
Fishing Secrets by Tom Murray
Tuvalu by Andrew O'Connor

The winner will be announced in Sydney tomorrow, Tuesday 20th September. It's odd that the "Australian", as co-sponsor of the award, should release the details of the shortlist in the print edition, but seem to have no mention of it on their website. As I've said before, their search and indexing facilities leave a lot to be desired.
