The Fish Anthology is the culmination of a year’s work, trawling through the thousands of submissions to the Fish Short Story, Short Memoir, Flash Fiction and Poetry Prizes. The judges were Mia Gallagher, Chrissie Gittins, Pamela Painter and Billy Collins respectively. The writers represented are from many countries. The launch is a celebration of these writers and an opportunity to hear some of them reading from their winning work. Fish Publishing was established in 1994 by Clem Cairns and Jula Walton to promote, encourage and publish new and emerging writers of quality.
