This week I've been in conversation with two lovely writers, both of whom have posted our chats on their websites.

Emma Ashmere's new short story collection Dreams They Forgot will be published by Wakefield Press on 1st September 2020.

Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Emma's short stories have been widely published including in The Age, Griffith Review, Overland, Review of Australian Fiction, Sleepers Almanac, Etchings, Spineless Wonders,  and the Commonwealth Writers literary magazine adda. She was shortlisted for the 2019 Commonwealth Writers Short Story Award, 2019 Newcastle Short Story Award, 2018 Overland NUW Fair Australia Prize, and the 2001 Age Short Story Competition.

Emma lives in northern New South Wales and my conversation with her can be found here
