News flash!

My short story, ‘The One That Got Away’, has been ‘Highly Commended’ in the Hurstville Discovery Writers Group 2014 competition : part of the Hurstville City Council Festival of Community Arts.

The competition had been open to adult  residents of Hurstville, Kogarah and Rockdale local government areas. For those unfamiliar, these councils are in suburban Sydney, N.S.W., Australia.

I’m thrilled!

News flash!

I’ve been Short-listed  🙂

As part of the Hurstville City Council 2014  Discovery Festival of Community Arts,  Hurstville Discovery Writers Group is holding both a Short Story Writing and Poetry Competition, and I’ve entered both.

The competition is open to all adult residents of Hurstville, Rockdale or Kogarah Municipality.

‘I didn’t know you wrote poetry’, I hear you say.  And normally, I don’t. But I have written in this genre before, and I decided to give it another go.

Not long ago I received an exciting  email, advising me that I have in fact been Short-listed. I don’t know at this stage which category it refers to.

As a first-time member of the the Short-listed Club, I can vouch for its positive vibes.
