Australian Horror Writers' Association Flash and Short Story Competition 2007
I'm sure the results for this are already well known but my friend, Marlene Fulcher, gets a big woohoo from me for receiving a commended in the flash section of the competition. Her story, Come to Mummy, is a creepy little tale and deserves the recognition. Marlene's ability to chill the reader in very few words is unnerving and I suspect relates to the skills in paring down language she has learned as a poet.
