Twitter is an amazing resource and if you haven’t embraced it yet you may be missing out. I found this really useful tweet by Catherine C. Turner (@OzAlleyCat) 04/12/2011 10:00, which had in turn been posted by @SydneyWriters, who had posted it on behalf of someone else … I think you get the picture. But the great thing is that it gives those who are hoping to be published an insight into what is involved.

A great new literary prize has just been announced by Voiceless, the animal protection unit. Aimed at short form writing, stories should involve animals raised for food or found in the Australian environment.
Some years ago I heard Brian Sherman AM interviewed on ABC radio. During the interview, he mentioned that daughter Ondine had become a vegetarian and had now devoted her life to making people aware of the rights of animals as sentient beings.
