About David Vernon

I am a freelance writer and editor. I am father of two boys. For the last few years I have focussed my writing interest on chronicling women and men’s experience of childbirth and promoting better support for pregnant women and their partners. Recently, for a change of pace, I am writing two Australian history books. In 2014 I was elected Chair of the ACT Writers Centre.

In 2010 I established the Stringybark Short Story Awards to promote the short story as a literary form.

Review by: Deanne Seigle-Buyat on July 16, 2017 :
A wide scope of stories that reflect our colour and diversity as a nation. Ranging from poignant to rollicking, the stories explore how we are shaped - not only by our great, wide land, but also by our history, our communities, our families and our neighbours. There is a celebration of tolerance in its pages, laced with glimpses of the damage done by those who aren’t.
And I totally adore the story called "Oscar Levitz and the Human Tower of Tarragona". It is GOLD!
