Joanna Morrison talks about her supernatural crime thriller, Still Dark, one of three manuscripts in the running to win the City of Fremantle Hungerford Award

Joanna Morrison’s manuscript, Still Dark, is shortlisted for the 2020 City of Fremantle Hungerford Award. If she wins, she’ll secure herself a publishing contract with Fremantle Press and a $15,000 cash prize from the City of Fremantle.

In this podcast she talks to Claire Miller about the process of working on her manuscript – a complex novel told from multiple points of view that combines elements of crime fiction and magic realism.

The winner of the City of Fremantle Hungerford Award will be announced at Fremantle Arts Centre on Thursday 22 October. Tickets are free but places are limited, so RSVP soon.
