Tiny Owl Workshop. Great stories told well.

Unfettered List

Unfettered is Tiny Owl Workshop’s first illustration-led project. Way back, when we asked the ever amazing Terry Whidborne if he’d be the first Unfettered artist he grinned like a maniac, nodded and promptly delivered ten stunning pieces of work. With the illustrations done, we sent word out far and wide hoping that the illustrations would inspire the telling of stories people would love to read.

They did.

Our thanks to all those who wrote their hearts out for ‘Unfettered’, making it an almost impossible task for judges – Terry (of the Whidborne variety), Freya Wright-Brough, Mitchell Grayson and myself (Sue Wright).  I’m incredibly grateful to the judges as (like most) they all work, or work and study, or work and study and write/draw/do law stuff and they worked through the submissions at night and weekends until done.

But, the judging has been done and the judges would like to extend our congratulations to the following writers whose stories will be included in our first Unfettered anthology, released in November 2014:

  • Emilie Collyer – The Beautiful One (Flower) – Melbourne
  • Roisin O’Donnell – Sanctuary (Sleeping) – Dublin
  • Harlan Ambrose – Pale Devil (Black Sunflowers) – Brisbane
  • Lois Spangler – At the Feet of the Hanging Tree (Squirrel Hair) – Brooklyn/Brisbane

  • Benjamin Hobson – Two Bees (Bees) – Sunshine Coast

  • Justine Graykin – Flight (Bees) – New Hampshire
  • Samuel Maguire – Little Souls (Hunters) – Ipswich
