ABR Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize

The Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize is one of Australia’s most respected short story competitions and generous too with the first prize winner being awarded $7000.

Elizabeth Jolley was awarded many coveted prizes for her books and stories throughout the 1980’s and 90’s. She didn’t publish her first book until she was 53 suggesting she was tenacious and talented!

‘Year of the Panda’ by Jonathan Tel was commended in the 2015 Australian Book Review Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize and is the story I offer you this week.
