On Sunday I went down to the Peter Cowan Writers’ Centre for the award ceremony of their inaugural 600 Competition.
The competition was open to stories of 600 words or less and my story – the 341 word Eclipse – was one of eleven shortlisted pieces, out of a total 245 entries.
Amanda Curtain (author of ‘The Sinking’) was the judge and described Eclipse as:
“A surreal, elliptical very short story of impending dread, whose meaning is grasped through sensory images and striking language.”
It was a great afternoon, and a delight to be around so many people passionate about local writing.
