This year Melbourne Prize for Literature had a new category (may it continue!!!) – Writers Prize it is called – for seriously long (10 to 20 thousand words), previously unpublished essays by Victorian writers. The winning essay by Kate Ryan (winning in more ways than one) plus four shortlisted essays got published, thanks to the Griffith Review, as an ebook. My essay ‘no Skin’ is a revisiting of the idea of traumascapes ten years later, and some other stuff. It’s the last one in the book because of the letter my surname starts with.
