I am delighted to say that my microfiction entry - "Four Dollars and Seventy-Five Cents" was selected as the winner of the 2018 Brisbane Writers' Festival Microfiction Competition. My congratulations to the winners of the High School and University categories, my sincere thanks to the Brisbane Writers' Festival for a wonderful comp, and also, appreciation to Uni of Queensland who sponsored the event.
The rules of the competition were that you had had to write a piece of under 200 words (that's not long) on the theme of What the World Needs Now. All I can say is that I got lucky. An idea came to me. I wrote it out and miraculously it was close to 200 words, and required very little redrafting. This is rare that this happens. RARE. I would love to share my words with you, but I am hoping to get it published elsewhere, and so cannot for the moment. What I can tell you, is that the piece is about a cup of coffee :)
