Grieve

 

Writing is sometimes described as bleeding onto the pages…  IMG_6549

I’m about to become a published author! This was the second year I entered a story in a national competition run by The Hunter Writers Centre on the difficult subject of grief, and I’ve been selected as a finalist.

Despite being a natural part of the human condition, our experiences are mostly kept hidden and private – at least within my experience of white Australian culture. The annual Grieve Competition with print and e-book anthologies aims to change that by the sharing of our stories. Writing about grief evokes the most poignant emotions and with Grieve, must be captured and defined in a mere 500 words.

Writing is sometimes described as bleeding onto the pages… and in this way, can bring healing to both writers and readers. Yes, indeed.
