BUSTED – SHORT STORY

 

BUSTED in the bad old days!

As the deadline for Bjelke Blues – the anthology I’m editing for AndAlso Books  –approaches,  here’s a story of mine about that time, “Busted”. It was first published in Griffith REVIEW 21 Hidden QLD and has recently been published online on the Artist Run Initiatives REMIX website

griffith-review-21-hidden-queensland

“Busted” is a story about the bad old days in QLD when election boundaries were rigged, corruption was rife, marches were banned, and police had way too much power.

READ BUSTED HERE

And if you have a story about being on the wrong side of the political fence during the Bjelke Petersen regime I’d love to hear from you.

Deadline is February 25 so you’ll have to hurry.

Let me know what you think of my story 🙂

Hope you enjoy it.

Lots of love,

Edwina xx

RED WINE, BLUE CHEESE

 

red-wine-blue-cheeseRecently I won third prize in the Odyssey House short story competition with my short story Red Wine Blue Cheese. YAY!

Never give up on a story. I’d been working on this one and sending it out over and over again since 2005. At last it’s found a good home and you can read it – HERE

It’s set in Singapore and loosely based on the time I spent there in the mid-nineties, just before I escaped to the chaotic freedom and wildness of Cambodia. Let me know what you think. Hope you like it 🙂
