SD Harvey Short Story Shortlist

The SD Harvey Short Story award (part of the Ned Kelly Awards of the Crime Writers Association of Australia) short list has been announced:

  • Fidget's Farewell, Scott McDermott
  • Farewell My Lovelies, Chris Womersley
  • Fern's Farwell, Bronwyn Mehan
  • Farewell to the shade, Cheryl Rogers
You will notice two things here:
  1. Each story has "farewell" in the title. This was a requirement of entry. The word "farewell" had to be included in the title, and be reflected in the story. Each year will be a different word.

  2. I'm not on the shortlist. This is not for want of entering: My entry was called "Farewell Gift". I won't be posting it to surgebin because:

    1. It's a bit long; and

    2. I want to tweak it and then resubmit it to more open short story competitions.
