The Modern Woman's Anthology 2010
As promised here is some information on the MWA 2010. Just because my friends and family really haven't heard enough about it...
The Modern Woman’s Anthology is a literary project that raises money for mental health. Twenty high-profile Australian women have submitted a chapter on the universal concept: What it means to be a woman in the modern world.
All proceeds will be donated to the Black Dog Institute, a not-for-profit, educational, research, clinical and community-orientated facility offering specialist expertise in depression and bipolar disorder.
The writers include: Australian Athletic Hero Cathy Freeman, Award-Winning Children's Author Libby Hathorn, Media Savvy Dr. Cindy Pan, Chairman and Executive Director of Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation Dr Gene Sherman, Australian Local Hero & Oz Harvest Founder (2010) Ronni Kahn, Freelance Journalist Nicole Madigan Everest, Business Woman Jen Dalitz, Author & Media Personality Kathryn Eisman, Adventurer Kate Leeming, Trespass Editor Olivia Hambrett, Bush Personality Jane Grieve, Artist Kathy Ulpar-Altman, Short Story Teller Rebekah Clarkson, Speech Pathologist Annemarie Laurence, PR Personality Kate Engler, Acting Teacher Kate Ellis, Studio Executive at Sony Pictures Entertainment Stacey Kalish, Opera Singer Rosa Krel, Real Estate duo Pauline Goodyer & Debbie Donnelley and Author Juliet Darling.
The Anthology will be launched by Therese Rein and Professor Gordon Parker at Customs House in Sydney on 22 June. Attendees will include all the contributors, media representatives, politicians and writers for the 2011 edition.
