Congratulations to Dead Sea Fruit writer Kaaron Warren on winning the Canberra Critics Circle writing award last night for her novel Slights.
The 20 year-old Canberra Critics’ Circle is the only such group of critics in Australia that runs across all the major art forms, not just performing arts. The circle changes each year depending on who is writing or broadcasting on the arts in Canberra.

Slights is Kaaron’s first novel, the first of three jaw-dropping books to be published by Angry Robot. Her award-winning short fiction has appeared in Year’s Best Horror & Fantasy, the Poe and Haunted Legends anthologies, Fantasy magazine, Paper Cities, and many other venues in the US, Europe and Australia. Her short story “A Positive” has been made into a short film called Patience, and her first ever published short story “White Bed” was dramatised for the stage in Australia.
She is currently working on a novella about the goddess Ishtar, and a novel about the washerwoman in history. She is an Australian, currently based in Canberra.
