Ferragost in Review of Australian Fiction
Review of Australian Fiction is an online journal that publishes short stories every two weeks by established and emerging Australian authors. RoAF invites an author to write a story, and then that author chooses an emerging author to be featured with them in an issue.
Raw Blue. Kirsty Eagar's story is called Molasses and set in the Australian city of Rockhampton. Melina Marchetta wrote a story called Ferragost, which is about Lady Celie, a character from the Lumatere Chronicles.
