I have a new (kinda YA) short story out at Scum Mag! ‘Moonlight for monsters’ is about kindness, queerness, a future pandemic, and a drain monster.
Read the full story on the Scum Mag website.
Entries for the 2020 Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction are NOW OPEN and I’m super excited to be one of this year’s judges! Please send us your wonderful short stories that engage with the theme ‘FUTURE’.
I have a new short piece of fiction up at Scum Mag! ‘Float’ is about flooding and hauntings, and I’m so proud that Scum thought it was spooky enough to publish.
I’m blue-cold when you reach me, skin pickled with floodwater, lips gently parted. Lids closed but eyes flickering. I can see your shifting shadow as if through fogged shower glass.
I’m honoured to be nominated for a Trans Community Award in Brisbane!
MX 2019 Award:
This award recognizes being seen within the community, being approachable and raising awareness of the visibility of the trans, gender diverse, non-binary, sistergirl and brotherboy communities by their actions.
In other news, I’ve recently had 3 non-fiction pieces published in Archer Magazine, Sydney Review of Books and the brand new Wellbeing Wild Magazine.
“…storytelling always has me glowing with adrenaline as if, all at once, I’ve done twenty sit-ups, eaten chocolate and kissed my crush.”

Aside from house decorating and exploring haunted forests, Free Realms also had a significant impact on the way I perceived, and performed, my gender identity.

Finally, my short story ‘Bodies Needed’ is part of an audio series ‘Urban Internet Myths’ at Digital Writers’ Festival 2019! Check it out here.
EPISODE 1: BODIES NEEDED, BY RAE WHITE
A temporary reception job at a funeral home takes a turn for the permanent.
My short story The Body Remembers is now available to read online a Lip Mag, along with a Q&A. This story placed second in the Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction!
(Best viewed landscape on your phone or on a computer.)
Here’s a little example of the Q&A:
What does this year’s theme, ‘fragments’ mean to you?
In The Body Remembers this theme is reflected in the fragmentation of memory and how those memories are recaptured and reclaimed by the body: the fractured self as snippets of recollection and body-memory.
And an example of the story itself:
Your words are spliced and springing half-form from your slim-line mouth: Pink gutters. Clogged walls. Lichen lichen blanket. We don’t have the cruelty to wake you and tell you the house on Pearl St no longer exists, pink-painted walls knocked down in the ’90s to make space for a high rise. It’s okay, we chitter like a chorus of budgerigars. We pull the stiff standard-issue blanket up to your neck; tuck it neatly behind your shoulder bones. It’s okay.
I have a new piece of flash fiction on Seizure called Snap Frozen. It’s about jeans, jizz and fuckboys. Enjoy! 😉
I have a short story called ‘Local Legend’ up on Slink Chunk Press! It’s about an enby who meets a unicorn and I absolutely loved writing it. Enjoy!
Content warning: poop, pee, first aid/wound care.
I have a short story called ‘Glitter and Leaf Litter’ coming out in the Gender Diverse Pronouns issue of Capricious! SO HAPPY!
It’s a story of two enby teenagers who have sleepovers in an abandoned mansion and the ghostly friends they meet along the way. The story uses they/them pronouns and has: #friendshipgoals, cuddles and spooning, glitter, whimsy, and poetic descriptions. ❤
