Began my mentorship with Emma Viskic (Resurrection Bay, And Fire Came Down) this week, as part of the WoMentoring Project. There is so much I want to say about this, about Emma Viskic in general. I can’t get over how supportive she’s been already. For those who do not know, my husband passed in late 2017. Emma has waited for me to be ready, and for that alone I will be forever grateful.
Received a highly commended in an international microfiction competition. Interestingly, it was run out of Tasmania and I’m now classed as a mainlander. Super proud to be published at home regardless.
Anyhoo, the good folks at Transportation Press are publishing the entries. Smoke One will be launched on the 19th in Hobart. Absolutely chuffed to be listed alongside Ben Walter and Stuart Barnes.
It’s time to get back into the writing properly. So if you want me, I’ll be at Glenfern Writers’ Studios …
In the midst of an extremely busy year, I somehow managed to submit to the wonderful people at AntiTHESIS, and I’m so pleased I did. Not only did they publish me but they turned out to be one of the best editorial teams I’ve worked with. An especially friendly wave goes out to Rochelle Liu. Love your work!
For the mid-year, I’m surprised to find myself feeling quite elated. I’m putting this down to my recent news and latest up-and-coming publication in Westerly. For a long time I’ve been trying to squeeze in a quasi literary career alongside my life as a carer, mother, and student, and it hasn’t always been successful. In fact, there have been moments where complete disillusionment has set in. Westerly have been on my list of dream journals for a while now, so to have a short story meet their standards is pretty pretty amazing.
Today the wonderful people behind Tincture Journal have published me in their ninth issue. Tincture Journal is a particularly interesting publication, as it’s solely an ebook literary journal. I guess this blog space, this publication, given my previous aversion to anything but print, is me moving with the times.
I’m very excited to announce that an excerpt from my novel ‘Somerton’ has been published in The Victorian Writer: Jan-Feb 2015|Fiction edition.
You can purchase a copy here and find it on page 22 … with horses.
