1 3 y separately published work icon The Sleepers Almanac X Zoe Dattner (editor), Louise Swinn (editor), Collingwood : Sleepers Publishing , 2015 9025594 2015 anthology short story

'Every year for the past ten, the Sleepers editors have called for stories from around Australia - any length up to 10,000 words. The result is always a heartbreaking and hilarious combination of tales from established authors alongside emerging and completely new authors. Many Sleepers Almanac stories have gone on to be selected for the Best Australian Stories, a testament to the high quality of the stories in here. As this is the final Sleepers Almanac, this will become a collector’s edition.' (Publication summary)
