I have no affiliation with The Age, I just saw this and thought, how exciting! I love short stories and I wish I had something to enter - but I know a few people who should put something in!


  1. Ants

    Tim has them.

  2. Maybe I should rethink my anonymous comment settings?

  3. Wait until you get comments with links to viagra or porn sites. I delete them straight away!


I heart comments...
