News,Events,Books,Thoughts from Janet Rudolph
Hi Janet .... I really enjoy Mystery Fanfare but today as I read the Ned Kelly nominations I noticed that the Short Story nominees all had FAREWELL in the title. Is there a reason ? And who or what is SD Harvey????Barney Retallick email@example.comPS I love the picture of you and the dog in your office/library ...... all those shelves and all those books!!!!
Not sure what an SD Harvey is, but I'll find out. Yes, it's weird about the farewell in all the titles. Actually I think Bronwyn Mehan's title is Fern's Farwell. That's how it was listed on the website, but it didn't sound right to me. I'll check on that, too. Thanks for noticing!
An SD Harvey is "Sandra Harvey", a late Australian journalist. More info on her and the award is at http://www.nedkellyawards.com/SDHarvey.htmlThe entry guidelines stated that, "The title of the short story must include a particular word (a signature) decided upon each year by the judges. This word must be reflected in the story. This year's word, for the inaugural competition is 'FAREWELL'. "I had a go at this competition. My entry was entitled, "Farewell Gift".
Thank you so much for the clarification. WE were all wondering about that.
