Southern Crossings is thrilled to announce that the brilliant Rashida Murphy will be joining us as our new Guest Contributor for the next few months.
Rashida Murphy has published short fiction and poetry in various international journals and anthologies, including Westerly, Open Road Review and Veils Halos and Shackles. Her novel, The Historian’s Daughter was shortlisted in the Dundee International Book Prize and published by UWA Publishing in 2016. She was Writer-In-Residence at the Katherine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre in 2017 and is currently an Adjunct at Edith Cowan University in Perth. Recently, her short story, Strands of Jupiter, was shortlisted in the Newcastle Short Story Prize. Her essays and stories are forthcoming in Landscapes Journal, Red Hen Anthology and an anthology to be published by Orient Longman later this year.
We are honoured that she has joined us in our aim to collectively reimagine Australia, South Asia, and the world. We can’t wait to read her new work in Southern Crossings.
