"Safe" in The New Quarterly

I'm very excited to see my story "Safe" out now in the latest issue of The New Quarterly (no. 138). The story is about a high school English teacher and his obsession with the murder of Chinese student Jun Lin four years ago. I was worried that no one would take on the story given its subject matter, so I'm very grateful that it found a good home at The New Quarterly. The new issue also has work by Elizabeth Hay, Steven Heighton, Cynthia Flood, and a number of others. Can't wait to dig in! Check it out! Also, learn all about why I do not write at my desk by checking out the TNQ blog here
