I posted a little while back that I’d applied for the 2012 Australian Horror Writers Association’s Mentoring Program. It seemed like a great opportunity to take my writing to the next level, particularly as a lot of my stories end up as horror but I always wonder if they are “horror enough”. The application was based on quality of writing as one criteria, so I submitted my application and excerpts and hoped for the best.
On the 20th of August I started chewing my nails, wondering about the results. Last night I got an email telling me I was successful! So I’m to be mentored by Jason Fischer, and I’m as excited as a policeman with two truncheons!
