Last year, I won an ACT Writers Centre award – which was an unexpected and bl**dy marvellous experience, thank you very much!
It recently got better because my story was picked up for publication in an anthology. I know some of you are readers, and so if you are interested in an eclectic mix of Australian short-form writing – from bush ballads to big L literature – you may want to have a squiz at the newly published Award Winning Australian Writers 2009.
You can order a copy from the publisher’s website. You could probably get it in a bookstore too, but I’m not sure which one.
