Finalist in Van Diemen History Prize

As part of my PhD studies, I have been researching the lives of early Vandemonian sealers with a particular emphasis on George Briggs, an important but mostly elusive figure in this history. I’m pleased to report that my piece “Pardoned to serve His Majesty by sea: The Life of George Briggs” has been chosen as a finalist in the Van Diemen History Prize and thus will be published in the resultant anthology, to be launched at the Hobart Writers Festival in 2023. I’m looking forward to attending the festival and hopefully meeting some of the prizewinners and finalists. Congratulations to Phillipa Moore and Terry Mulhern for taking out this year’s prize! 

You can read more about the prizewinners and finalists on the Forty South website.
