After a truly epic amount of fantastic applications and spirited debate amongst the Momentum staff, I’m super chuffed to announce our three NEW Momentum bloggers!

Writing for the Momentum blog are:

Sophie Overett

Sophie Overett is a cultural producer and writer from Brisbane. Her short fiction has been published around the world. In 2015 she is a Queensland Literary Fellow and her YA manuscript, Agatha Abel Meets Her Maker was shortlisted for the Text Prize. She is one half of Lady Parts, a monthly podcast exploring women’s roles in genre cinema and she blogs at www.sophieoverett.com.

Follow her on Twitter: @SophieOverett

Emily Stamm

Emily K. Stamm is sometimes a librarian, sometimes a writer. Her hobbies mostly include things that would make her feel at home in a fantasy world, such as sword-fighting, beer-brewing, and hanging out with cats. For more of Emily’s thoughts follow her on Twitter @Stammily or on her blog: http://carnivalofsorts.wordpress.com

And writing for the Moonlight blog is:

Rhyll Biest

Rhyll Biest is part of the army of darkness that services the government but is certain that her forthcoming novel about the virgin yak mistress of a tofu billionaire will catapult her into fame, fortune and reality television. She likes naughty stories, extreme silliness and is a card-carrying Russophile

 Twitter handle @rhyllbiest

Facebook  at: https://www.facebook.com/Beestfiction?ref=aymt_homepage_panel

Blog is at: http://www.biestbooks.com/blog

Rhyll will be joining our Moonlight blogger Jodi McAlister, or Doctor Love as she’s better known.

Hooray, we’re so excited to have these talented writers on the team, and looking forward to all the amazing stuff they will write for us!

– 4-8 blog posts a month, with a minimum word count of 300 words each.
