Rebirth was a finalist in the Newcastle Herald ‘Summer Stories’ competition. Stories this year were inspired by a choice from three visual stimuli.
The photo that inspired Rebirth showed Xanthorrhoea regeneration in a post-apocalyptic landscape after a firestorm.
Rebirth was first published in the Newcastle Herald on 25 January 2014. It can be read online at the Newcastle Herald website.
Winners of this competition will be announced on Australia Day, 26th January 2014.
