other things coming up? well there’s the fourW launches in Wagga & Sydney of course (15th & 22nd). i’m going to be there at both events, soaking up the relaxed atmosphere of not being an editor this year, & therefore not being involved in emceeing. also, i don’t mind announcing it here now, as it’s only a few days away: the winner of both Booranga Prizes for 2008 (best poetry submission & best short-story) is alicia sometimes. alicia will be in Wagga on saturday to read some of her work too. can’t wait.
finally, i guess i should talk up the launch of the next Southerly on the 28th. this is a special issue devoted to the short story, & it will feature one written by me. it’s the first story i’ve ever placed, which is cool. watch out all you writers of short-fiction, cos you know, i can do that too… alas i can’t be at this launch, but if you want to go along & pretend to be me, go for it. maybe sam twyford-moore will do it… i believe he has some involvement in this uncertainty conference… actually, what could be more uncertain than an impostor?
