We want to provide a forum for writers to be published, without barriers like paid subscriptions or needing to be an established writer. And for readers, you can catch up on the best new Australian writing right here, for free.

There’s nothing better to get you through the week than a good story... one you can’t put down. So pretty soon we'll be publishing new pieces weekly. In the meantime, we’d love to read your story.

A Man Of His Word

Profile picture for user benjmason86

His guts churn something shocking, so he reaches for the pills and washes down a couple with a good clump of spit. The knot loosens, relief flushes. The kitchen sink is clean. Did the dishes last night. Do the dishes and wake up to a clean caravan. New man, new decisions. Sign of things to come. 

The sun chases him over the mattress until one more roll will see him face plant the floor. Been a while since it’s had a mop. Plus, imagine yelling out to the other long termers and asking to help lift him up: all six-four inches and a hundred odd kilos. 

Round Peg, Square Hole

Profile picture for user email_registration_ujPzr8WCBo

I had always known that there was something ‘abnormal’ about myself, something that was a little off-kilter. I can’t quite grasp whether this manifested as positive or negative, but I know that I didn’t fit in; my early memories are that of being a square peg, an unfortunate position. Unfortunate because society offered me naught but a round hole.
