Sydney Writers’ Festival here we come

Well, dear Reader, I won the Microlit competition!

The video presentations of each story were amazing! For me they opened up a whole new range of possibilities for text in multimedia. The words were part of a bigger work of art which incorporated the visual, the musical and the voice. Visit my author page on Facebook to see the video of my award winning story, Koi.

Now, the story is off to the Sydney Writers’ Festival to be read in the session Little Fictions held on Monday 16 May from 7.00 – 8.30 pm, at Knox St Bar, 21 Shepherd St, Chippendale. Entry $15. All welcome!

    CONGRATULATIONS, KAREN. Yes ‘congratulations’ is in capital letters which means I’m ‘shouting’ it out loud. A wonderful achievement.

    Newcastle, Sydney, what next? The world is a big place and you have a special talent that will reap rewards. Congratulations, it is a long road ahead and your persistence in perfecting your craft has brought you to this stage. Look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

    • Thank you for your lovely comment, Bobby. Persistence can’t be underestimated. I read an article this morning about the girl who won the Vogel this year. She was stunned to be a “writer” after only writing one short story and one novel. It must be an incredible novel. If only it could happen so easily for the other 99% of us.

  7. Congratulations Karen. Well done!
