However, for the Brisbane based horror author, the time has come to step down from his role and take the long journey into the unknown. Cameron Trost has recently informed the Executive Committee of the Australasian Horror Writers Association (‘AHWA’) that at the completion of the AHWA Flash and Short Story competition – which sees entries close at the end of this month – that he will be stepping down from his role as the AHWA’s Competitions Coordinator.
“It is a shame,” AHWA President Brendon Meynell said.
“Cameron has always been one of those people I could always turn to who would tell you honestly how things sit,”
“He was one of the reasons I joined the AHWA in the first place, and it will feel different not contacting him about our upcoming competitions,”
“Obviously we wish him the best for what the future holds.”
