Finch Memoir Prize


  [Finch Publishing]

C/o 33 Blacks

Road Arcadia NSW 210259




The Finch Memoir Prize is an annual publication prize for an unpublished memoir of between 40,000 and 80,000 words. The $10,000 prize money, payable on publication, includes a component of $5000, which is an advance against royalties from sales of the resulting book.. The winner is chosen by an independent panel of three judges who are not connected with the publisher. The award was founded in 2010 by Finch Publishing director Rex Finch with the aim of encouraging Australian writers, published and unpublished, to commit to paper their life stories and thus add to the body of Australian creative non-fiction. Truth is stranger than fiction – which is probably why so many readers love to read the real-life accounts of their fellow men and women. Memoirs are also inspiring and uplifting, reflecting the resilience of the human spirit.
