Excerpts from the novels of all ten finalists, including 2000 words from my novel 'Take Away People'.

 

Out There (edited by Zoe Strachan) Freight Books 2014.

Short story - 'In Stitches'

REVIEW FOR OUT THERE - 'This sophisticated and mature volume does a great deal more than simply tackle the heterosexual viewpoint that dominates most Scottish literary work, especially in very male-dominated stories. The short stories, poems and non-fiction collected here all put lesbian women and gay men at the centre of society and the centre of the story. But they do so in such a casual and easeful way that it almost feels as though the centre of society and the centre of the story are a place they have always occupied.' Sunday Herald
