When a short story finds a home, and an award …

Thrilled to share that my short story GOOD SHOES has received a Highly Commended award in the Newcastle Short Story Award Hunter Writers Centre
GOOD SHOES is a bittersweet story about coastal homelessness, female safety and survival, and sanctuary sought in public libraries and quiet streets.
Ths story was inspired by an observation years ago in Mornington Peninsula Libraries and on the evolving homelessness crisis in the coastal community where I live.
It will feature in the printed anthology in coming months.
Many thanks to the judges and the Highly Commended sponsor Officeworks for their generous prize. (I’ve never owned a kindle so that’s rather cool too!)
Congratulations to all my fellow authors selected to be published in this anthology of the best Australian writing.

The judges have been quoted as saying:

“It’s a gift when fiction can take us into an imagination unlike our own and expand us.” 

–  Joey Bui and Bram Presser

The Anthology is available via Booktopia https://www.amazon.com.au/Newcastle-Short…/dp/0645375624/

It was lovely to receive my Highly Commended prize pack of writing and reading goodies from prize sponsor Officeworks too!
