 Flash Fiction Competition


Congratulations to Charli Thompson from Year 6, who won the Mary Ryan’s Bookshop Flash Fiction Competition. The Theme was Australia – Story Country (100 words or under).

It was a misty morning and the sun was rising, filling the world with light. A figure emerged out of the fog. “Biyanga! Biyanga!” a small voice called. “Ghosts, have arrived on the shore!” The old figure shifted a little, but then said, “come, sit Akuna,” The little girl sat on the hard red dirt. “They are not ghosts little one, they are humans, white skinned humans,” He stared into the distance, then gave her a look of concern. “You stay away from them, they should not have come here, we belong to this land not them,” Akuna nodded silently.
