Wanted: Inky Awards judges

Pictured (L-R): 2013 Inky Awards judges, Harison, Sarah, and Chris.

Do you know any #YALit fans aged 12–20 with a love of words, a distinguishing eye and aspirations for literary criticism? We are in search of keen teenaged readers to become the 2014 Inky Awards judges. A panel of six judges will be selected to read the twenty longlisted Inky Awards titles and whittle them down to a shortlist of ten. Applications close Monday 14 April. MORE INFO HERE.

 

Three of last year’s judges (L-R) Harison, Sarah and Chris are pictured here at the 2013 Inky Awards.


I don’t often post as ‘me’, but I highly recommend applying for this position. You get to keep the books, and the Inky Awards and the judges are held in high regard. Go for it!

No two people read the same book!

Made as an ad by Duncan Macleod for the New Zealand Book Council, I find this to be a really powerful way to drive home the point that no two people read the same book!

File 17747

You’re the Voice is your opportunity to have your say about the world of books. To write about what you read, what you love, and what you want. It’s a weekly blog post published right here on the Inside a Dog website, which is all about books for teens.

So far there’s been Voices from Queensland through to Tasmania, and they’ve blogged about everything from bandwagons to fictional role-models to the decline of the bookshop.

‘I’ve had a wonderful experience blogging for You’re the Voice. Thank you so much for all the support. I have had quite a blast’ - Rehan

‘I’ve truly enjoyed writing for you guys here on Inside a Dog, and you’ve all been so brilliantly supportive and friendly to me this past month :) Thank you!’ – Leah
