Yep, you read that correctly: our latest installment of the Inanimate Alice series, Perpetual Nomads (Beta Version), has made another Awards shortlist! The prize is the QUT Digital Literature Award, which is part of the 2017 Queensland Literary Awards.
The Queensland Premier had this to say about the Digital Literature Award, which is running for the very first time this year:
“The introduction this year of the QUT Digital Literature Award recognises the ongoing expansion of writing and publishing in the digital space, and is a significant addition to these awards.”
The Judges feedback included:
“A wonderful new iteration of the long-running Inanimate Alice series. Mez [Breeze] brings her own voice to the character of Alice and the integration of sound, image, and animation with text brings the project up to date.”
