2024 Stringybark Short Story Award Finalist

We are deligted to share that Alexandria Blaelock was a finalist in the 2024 Stringybark Short Story Award!

Her story “Witches Blessing,” is among the forty-one Highly Commended stories published in Crowd Surfing, the anthology containing this year’s finalists.

We particularly enjoyed “The Great Prawn Heist,” by Rosa Li, “All the Birds Fly North,” by Tom Walters, and “In for a Penny,” by Thom James.

Alexandria is in good company indeed!

Collections of short stories are always an interesting mix, and with any luck, you’ll find more that you like than you don’t.

Have a read and let us know which stories you preferred.

The ebook is available now, and they’re taking pre-orders for the paperback (expected in late July) at the Stringybark shop.

To celebrate, the Stringybark Short Story Award is offering 25% off the ebook (reduces the price to $2.75), until August 15 2024 with the code PJ97B.
