The Refuge

I started writing The Refuge in 2010.  Now, four years on, and here it is published in the American literary magazine Mused.

There is a little bit of truth in the story. It would be hard to write convincingly about the experience of living in a women’s refuge unless the author has done so herself.

When I heard recently that in New South Wales, Australia, women’s refuges were being put out to tender by local government, the contracts almost invariably won by the corporate giants,I felt inspired to revisit the original draft of my story that had remained untouched for years.

The Refuge portrays what it might be like to find yourself in a corporatised women’s refuge. It’s dystopia.
