2016 City of Fremantle TAG Hungerford Award Shortlist

Tineke is shortlisted for the prestigious 2016 TAG Hungerford Award. Her manuscript 'Traverse' was selected with 4 other manuscripts from the unpublished manuscripts submitted to Fremantle Press for the biannual award.

Tineke wrote the book after travelling to northern Madagascar to save her marriage. "Focused on the relationship I underestimated the challenge of hiking for 350km. Reflecting back on the trip, it was precisely this journey that made me distinguish my own purpose ... and traverse to a new future in Australia.

The winner will be announced by Mayor Brad Pettitt at the 40th Anniversary of Fremantle Press on 2 November 2016.
