Shortlist 2017

The Deborah Cass Prize Committee is pleased to announce the shortlist for the 2017 prize. This is the first year the prize has gone national, which is reflected in a doubling of the number of entries. This year we had 91 submissions from all parts of Australia. The entries were of high quality and reflected a wide diversity of the migrant experience. Those selected for the shortlist were stories that were written in an engaging and interesting style, while at the same time they offered a fresh perspective on the migrant experience.
