This last few weeks have been a roller coaster, with the high of winning second prize in the Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction and the downer of receiving a rejection for a manuscript submission. From the competition win, new pathways to publication are opening up, so that’s exciting. I didn’t advance in the NYC Midnight micro fiction contest, but I am in the throes of finishing an entry for the Scarlet Stiletto competition that I am enjoying writing.
Ups and downs.
Over the coming weekend, I’ll be taking part in the NYC Midnight Flash Fiction competition and have a writing buddy to help beta read my entry.
I live in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. I write short fiction and novels. My stories have appeared in The Big Issue Fiction Special, Award Winning Australian Writing, Women’s Day, That’s Life and other anthologies. I have won or been placed in many competitions including the Hope Prize, the Scarlet Stilettos and the FAW National Literary Awards. In 2018, I received a women’s writing scholarship through The Hope Prize.
I am a Writers Victoria Regional Ambassador for Gippsland and President of the Gippsland Writers Group. I teach creative writing classes at Warragul Community House and help program the Latrobe Literary Festival.
