Listen to Rowan Heath on “The Mannequin”34:5023 August 2023

Rowan Heath joins Hamish and Sam to discuss their short story, 'The Mannequin', which was the winner of the 2023 Australian Book Review Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize. There were a total of 1,200 entrants in this year's prize, with entries from 38 different countries. They discuss the writing process, the importance of queer representation in major writing competitions, what it’s like to read your own work aloud (and to your parents), and of course, LARPing, another one of Rowan's passions. 

You can read and listen to Rowan’s short story on the Australian Book Review's website:
