To celebrate our 10th issue, we are doing things differently. All stories to be published in the next issue will come from long-listed entries to the competition and the prize money is doubled.
We are excited to have Laurie Steed as the judge for this competition. Laurie is intent on finding a deeper connection to life through the written word and helping as many people as he can to do the same. The author of You Belong Here (2018) and editor of Shibboleth and other stories (2016), his work has been featured on BBC Radio 4 and in collections including Best Australian Stories, Award Winning Australian Writing, The Review of Australian Fiction, The Age, Meanjin, Westerly, Island, and The Sleepers Almanac.
Laurie has also been a champion of our little anthology from the beginning and understands our search for great short stories.
