About Writers on Rafts

Writers on Rafts is an initiative of Queensland Writers Centre and author Rebecca Sparrow to raise money for the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal. More than 150 Australian authors have pledged prizes.

  • To enter Writers on Rafts go to
  • Purchase as many tickets as you like in as many categories as you want!
  • Every ticket is one chance to win for a lucky person in every state and territory.
  • Every dollar goes directly to the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal to help victims of the Queensland floods.
  • QWC’s goal is to raise $10,000 through Writers On Rafts.
  • We will be conducting the draw on Friday, 25 February.

The initiative is being coordinated by Queensland Writers Centre, but because their own building (the State Library of Queensland) has been affected by flood, they are currently not able to access their offices to answer the phone, so please them email for now.

A couple of sweets this week.

Firstly, Glitter Rose popped up on Walker of the World’s Top Ten Reads for 2010.

Then Transformation Space crept into Waterstones Top 40 SFF and Horror at number #34.
