We’ll Stand in that place and Other Stories
Publisher: Margaret River Press
This anthology features nineteen short stories selected from over 240 entries in the annual Margaret River Short Story Competition. The prize winning story, ‘We’ll Stand in That Place,’ by Kit Scriven, is intense and intriguing. Located on the streets of scungy St Kilda, it deals with queer life, addiction, love, death and hope. Whether conventional or experimental in style, the work in this collection is strong, and voyages from first forbidden sexual awakenings through broken marriages, ecological issues, a future dystopia, trees that talk, Greek families, and a very unusual plane ride. The result is a stimulating reading experience.
