Long List Released for 100 Stories for Queensland

After a speedy weekend, we were able to release the list of names and stories which comprise the Long List for 100 Stories for Queensland. I’m so happy to see names in it I recognise, including names of well-known writers both here and abroad… including Alan Baxter, Krissy Kneen, Robert Hoge, Geoff Nelder and Sean Williams. I’m also thrilled to see plenty of emerging Australians and Brisbane writers on the list. The quality of the contributions was high and we’re going to have a hard job ahead of us this week, whittling the long list of 146 down to a short list of 120 and then finalising the 100 Stories which will appear in the anthology.

As always, the management team, joined by Nick Daws, is on the job!  The plan is to release the Table of Contents this time next week.
