After a proverbial mountain of applications, Scissors Paper Pen are thrilled to announce we will be supporting the following two young reviewers in the upcoming Reviewers of the Future Masterclass. We couldn’t quite believe the quality of application we received. Here are our two up and coming reviewers we’ll be supporting:

Tim google+ 3Tim Hoar started his blog Not Now, I’m Drinking a Beer and Watching a Movie as a way of doing something (moderately) productive with all the time he spends watching old movies. And despite being stuck in the horrid confines of full time public service work, he still manages to post two or three reviews a week.Tim has had film reviews published on a bunch of blogs all over the internet including Film Blerg, The Film Brief and Cinema Schinema as well as having a couple of CD reviews published in the Canberra Times. He was also the co-host of the sadly now defunct Film Brief podcast. He has now found himself writing part time for the Rugby website Green and Gold Rugby.

But even before all of these things, Tim was an avid book reader and student of literature. His Bachelor of Arts had majors in Film and English and to be honest, the film part of that scenario essentially came about because he needed a filler subject. He’s am really looking forward to diving into the world of book reviews and seeing where that takes him

LucyLucy Nelson is a writer, editor, reader, performer, dancer-in-the-dark and carbohydrate enthusiast. Her favourite font is calibri and she once borrowed a pen from Christos Tsiolkas.

After studying performance, writing and editing at Deakin and RMIT Universities, Lucy completed an editorial internship with Sleepers Publishing, co-founded Melbourne writers collective Prolog and sat on the selections and editorial committee of Visible Ink, an annual anthology of new writing. Lucy’s reviews have been published by BMA, Papercuts (Scissors Paper Pen) and Buzzcuts (Voiceworks). Her poetry has been published by the Taralla Writers Group. Most recently, she was lucky enough to review the Miles Franklin shortlisted novel Floundering and interview its very lovely author, Romy Ash. The interview was published by the ACT Writers Centre on its blog, Capital Letters.

Co-founder of the Canberra chapter of No Lights No Lycra, Lucy blogs at http://nlnlcanberra.blogspot.com.au/  and writes about Canberra women in the arts (among other things) on her (currently neglected) website Only Partly. (www.onlypartly.com)

Having lived in the illustrious national capital for the last three years, Lucy is now a Canbassador.
