I didn’t know it, but shortlisted means I got in! My short story will appear in the 2015 Margaret River Short Story anthology published by Margaret River Press. A real book. In print. On the bookshelves of real bookstores. Oh the ecstasy!
But wait, there’s more. Not only did I get in, but they have awarded me the South West prize. Can you tell I’ve never been published before? Yes, it is my first time, but it won’t be my last as I have caught the bug.
I’m a little intimidated by some of the awesome writers that are appearing in the book with me. Here’s a sneak peak…
