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.
