Jane Higgins wins Text prize

Jane Higgins’ manuscript The Bridge, was yesterday declared the winner of the Text Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing. This is a major coup for Jane as the book will not only be published in NZ and Australia but is most likely to be sold internationally as well. Jane was the joint winner of the Best Folio for Year 2 students last year and we are immensely proud of her achievement and excited that this heralds the beginning her career as a published writer. Her tutor for 2007/2008 was Bernadette Hall and her mentors, Frankie Macmillan and Fleur Beale.
