Welcome!

It's a book!The concept was as easy as the heroine. The writing, as hard as the hero standing over her. The result, a twisted collection of 50 awkward love stories.

We’re talking inappropriate.
We’re talking so bad it’s good.
We’re talking ‘oh-my-god-my-eyes-can’t-unread-that’

UQ Writers’ Club is proud to present 50 Shades of Awkward.

Meet the sewer worker that helps clean a lost man’s pipes. Shudder at the Sea Captain with an unhealthy obsession for Octopus. Laugh at heaving bosoms and throbbing love members… but thoroughly wash your hands afterwards, because it all feels just a little bit wrong.

50 Shades of Awkward is a collection of 50 clever, awkward, genre warping love stories by up and coming members of The University of Queensland Writers’ club. All funds raised will be used to pay for entry to writing festivals, flights for famous authors to visit the club, and generally just get them more involved in the industry they love. It’s money for a good cause and an even better laugh.

Want to buy the book? 50 Shades of Awkward will shortly be available on Kickstarter, we will post updates to our Facebook Page when the book goes live
