Kill Your Darlings (KYD) has announced the contributors to its third annual anthology of short stories, New Australian Fiction 2021.

The contributors are:

  • Bryant Apolonio
  • Alice Bishop
  • Lauren Aimee Curtis
  • Brooke Dunnell
  • Ashley Goldberg
  • Eliza Henry-Jones
  • Scott Limbrick
  • Anith Mukherjee

  • Emily O’Grady
  • Daley Rangi
  • Mykaela Saunders
  • Ben Walter

‘This new anthology is a collection of 16 extraordinary stories, each of which seeks to find pathways to connecting with others in a world transformed by climate disaster, politics and technology, the ongoing fight for First Nations and LGBTQIA+ people’s rights, along with the personal trials bound up in family and relationships,’ said KYD publishing director and series editor Rebecca Starford. ‘And while the pandemic isn’t always written into all these stories, they are each in their own way responding to how we continue to adapt to our changed lives, and what it means to live with and love others.’

The 16 stories were chosen from over 500 submissions. New Australian Fiction 2021 will be published in September.
