The Australian Short Story Festival returns

Published 20th September, 2019 in News

It’s on again—the Australian Short Story Festival!

As the name suggests, it is a festival dedicated to the short story in written and spoken forms. It brings together local, national and international short story authors and oral storytellers in a culturally diverse and vibrant celebration.

We’ve published a lot of short story collections over the years, and have had the pleasure of being involved in the festival since its conception in 2016 as a co-founder.

This year’s festival has been sponsored by Swinburne University, organised by Dr Julia Prendergast, and will be held in Melbourne. 

Julia and her team have put together a brilliant program for the weekend of October 18–20.

Our own Bindy Pritchard will be heading over to talk about her debut, Fabulous Lives.

Abigail Ulman, Ali Alizadeh, Barrie Sherwood, Gay Lynch, Hannah Wu, Quinn Eades, Maria Tumarkin, Sreedhevi Iyer, Roanna Gonsalves, Susan Midalia and so many others will also be attending!

Check out the program, and get your tickets now!

We publish high-end literary fiction, crime and the best short stories currently being written in Australia.
