The anthology is titled Humanity: A Short Story Collection. Half the stories are set in Africa, in honour of worldreader.org’s first year-long literacy and education program using ereaders in Ghana. The half of the stories not set in Africa each have a focus on an aspect of human behaviour common to many people around the world (from loyalty and betrayal to love and fear).

The anthology will be available as a Kindle ebook for purchase on Amazon from Feb 28th, with half the proceeds going to worldreader.org for their literacy and education work using ereaders in developing countries and the other half going to AusLit for charitable purposes such as writer development in Australia. In addition to the charitable benefits, Humanity will help take Australian literature to people around the world.

The line-up for the Australian anthology, to be published in April, will be announced on Monday Feb 14th. Submissions are open until Feb 28th for the Basics of Life anthology, to be published in May.
