#LoveOzYA Short Stories - Edited by Tobias Madden

Featuring 'Variation' by Tobias Madden

Underdog is the first #LoveOzYA short story anthology for unpublished Australian writers.

#LoveOzYA celebrates the best of new Australian writing for teenage readers. It has grown from a humble hashtag into a movement, reflecting the important role young adult fiction plays in shaping our current generation of readers. This anthology collects, for the first time, some of the tremendous work from the #LoveOzYA community. Featuring a foreword by award-winning Australian novelist Fleur Ferris (Risk, WreckBlack and Found), Underdog celebrates the diverse, dynamic and ever-changing nature of our nation's culture. From queer teen romance to dystopian comedy, from hard-hitting realism to gritty allegory, this brilliant, engrossing and inspiring collection of short stories will resonate with any teen reader, proving, yet again, why there is just so much to love about #LoveOzYA.

A 'how-to guide' for surviving life, parents, and sharing the limelight


Siblingship the cabaret follows the childhood journey of Daniel Assetta (The Book of Mormon, Wicked, CATS) and Chiara Assetta (West Side Story, Good Omens The Musical, The Dismissal), two real-life, all-singing, all-dancing, Italian-Australian siblings. Through classic show tunes and a splash of pop music, this dynamic cabaret explores the ‘rules’ that make the world’s most unique relationship work. Siblingship is a show for everyone who ever fought with, told secrets to, stood up for, laughed and cried with, absolutely couldn’t stand—but always loved and could never live without—their siblings.

'The show is beautifully written, brave, thoughtful, endlessly entertaining, and in places, quite moving.'
