Today I got my copy of Issue 134 of The New Quarterly. It also happens to be the home for my first-ever published short story! Holding it in my hands, I felt like I was able to see it (just for a moment) as a reader, not as the writer. Which was both brilliant and terrifying. Even my name looked different to me. It was a really special moment, one I'm sure I'll carry with me forever.
If you're interested, you can grab a copy of the issue from your fave [indie] bookstore, your library or you can even read it online.
