Just before Christmas, I won a short story competition here in the ACT.
Well, love it, loathe it, or be bored by and indifferent to it, here it is.
It’s called Skin Deep and won the Marjorie Grabner-McInnis Short Story Award 2008.
It is linked from this page http://www.actwriters.org.au/ACTawards.html and is a PDF file.
