SBS Emerging Writers' Competition

Roots brings us thirty of the best short memoirs chosen from more than 2000 entries in the inaugural SBS Emerging Writers' Competition.

Offering a snapshot of contemporary Australia, this diverse collection of stories explores love, family, loss, culture, sexual awakening and the abiding connections to people and place that make us who we are. Told with utterly fresh perspectives and a rich vein of literary talent, these stories are an invitation into the unique and intimate worlds of everyday Australians.

Featuring stories by Alana Hicks, Nadia Johansen, Amy Duong, Nakul Legha, Karla Hart, Tania Ogier, Miranda Jakich, Sita Walker, Jason Phu, Trent Wallace, Amer Etri, Bon-Wai Chou, Caitlyn Davies-Plummer, Cher Coad, Courtney Theseira, Dianne Ussher, Esme James, Hugh Jorgensen, Jackie Bailey, Kaye Cooper, Lal Perera, Maha Sidaoui, Margarita D'heureux, Michael Sun, Monikka Eliah, Naeun Kim, Prateeti Sabhlok, Rosie Ofori Ward, Sam Price and Serpil Senelmis.

Hardie Grant and SBS champion the voices of often underrepresented Australians, and support the discovery and development of emerging talent to contribute to greater diversity in Australian storytelling
