New Authors – New Writing
A skyful of stars, an architect’s dream house, vengeance and betrayal, immaculate love.
Just a few of the motifs that our SSOA writers use in weaving their spirited stories.
Anthology is a collection of short stories across a wide range of themes and styles.
It is with great pride and pleasure that Sydney School of Arts & Humanities presents to the reading public this our first short story anthology, as part of our expanding publications list.
SSOA’s primary aim is to nurture emerging writers through attendance at our writing meet-ups, specialist classes and mentoring sessions – and we are committed to the publication of high quality works by our members.
Yet this anthology goes even further, matching the storytelling skills of our emerging writers in the two meet-ups – Sydney Writers Circle & Sydney Storytellers – with those of new writers in other parts of Australia and Asia. Our goal to search for the best of emerging writers’ works may account for the stimulating range of fictional voices showcased in this collection. About half of the contributors to the anthology have attended writing groups at the School, and the other half responded to a call for submissions through our website.
