Micro or flash fiction

A story about stars prompted this 500 word entry to the 2018 Bert van  Bedaf award at the Coal Creek Literary Festival where it was awarded a Highly Commended certificate. Southern Cross

I wrote this story in a fugue with no real direction. It landed on the page like it had been created elsewhere. It won me the 2012 Bert van Bedaf award at the Coal Creek Literary Festival and a beautiful handcrafted and engraved wooden pen. Moon bounds

This story crosses the lines between a story for children and a story for adults. It won me the 2011 Nairda Lyne Award. Tissues at the ready. Weeping for Jed

This odd little story won me second prize in the 2010 Scribbligum Flash Fiction competition. He says, she says

This was an early win for me, in more ways than one. I wrote a version of this story when I was in my early twenties and rewrote it when I got back into writing. It was published in Woman’s Day in 2009. The eye of the beholder

This story has a special place in my heart: my first competition win, The Scribbligum Flash Fiction Award in 2009. It was published in Award Winning Australian Writing 2009. The List Girl
