Nice to see you.
''They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes,
Within a dream.''

Melbourne Writers Festival Launch (Story)
It's short notice, but Saturday the 4th of September sees the official launch of the 25th Anniversary Edition of the Verandah Literary Journal. They are using the Melbourne Writer's Festival to do it and I'm pleased to have a story in this special edition, The Long Jetty.
If you're in Melbourne, and happen to find yourself at Federation Square at 4pm, pop into the Feddish Cafe/Bar Restaurant, River Terrace Yarra Building, where the Launch is taking place.
Unfortunately, I will be in Sydney and can't attend, but I am honoured to be a part of the magazine and the festival, in this small way.
You can pre-order the issue here. If you're in Australia, you might want to get a copy. Not only is it a great Literary publication with stories and poetry, but there is featured artwork, Design, Photography and non-fiction as well. (There is also special offers on past editions.)
