My Name is Revenge

My Name Is Revenge written by Ashley Kalagian Blunt, narrated by Felix Johnson

A literary thriller novella set in 1980s Sydney and drawn from true events, including a series of international terrorist attacks, My Name is Revenge is the story of a young man seeking justice.

My Name is Revenge is published by Spineless Wonders Audio. It was a finalist in the 2018 Carmel Bird Digital Literary Award, and shortlisted for the 2019 Woollahra Digital Literary Award. It is narrated by Felix Johnson.


Siarad written and narrated by Caroline Reid with sound design by Jeff Zhang

Siarad is a Welsh word, meaning to talk, to speak. In this collection of spoken word, prose poetry and micro-fiction, Reid speaks to the memories and emotions that move us through decades, continents and cultures.

The collection pulses with images of stars and stray dogs, highways with no horizon and mothers with fading memories. Reid’s background as a performer and playwright shines in this collection of works that are as bold as they are tender, begging to be shouted, spoken, whispered many times over.

StoryRoad App [in production]

StoryRoad App prototype presented by Richard Holt

Story Road is a place-based storytelling app curated and produced by Spineless Wonders which maps the continent of Australia with local stories. You’ll be able to key in your route, or rely on your GPS, and be delivered a location-specific fiction soundtrack to your journey. We’ll work with cultural and creative partners to create layers of stories that represent, in great contemporary fiction, all the complexity of country, history and society, mapped against the places you’re travelling through. The stories in this prototype are located on Eora land. The StoryRoad project acknowledges and pays respect to Eora Elders past, present and emerging.
