FORTY SOUTH SHORT STORY ANTHOLOGY
Selected by Chris Gallagher and Pete Hay
I’VE always thought the best travel writing should completely engulf the senses, transporting the reader to new lands through new experiences.
Imagine my delight, then, when I read the 11 stories in the Short Story Anthology, each like a minibreak providing an exquisite little vignette into island life.
Selected from a larger pool of entrants by poet Pete Hay and the Tasmanian Writers Centre’s Chris Gallagher, the 11 stories that made the cut are linked thematically and by their forms.
These fictions are indeed short stories, demonstrating the importance of the single moment and of concision in writing.
In fact, crime writer David Owen noted that each writer met the challenge by finding new approaches to material: with limited space in which to develop character, theme and importantly resolve events within.
