As Deputy Editor here at Writers Bloc, I've had the absolute privilege of working with some of Australia's most amazing emerging and established writers. The Best of Bloc Features 2016 is here to take you out of 2016 with a look at some of my favourite pieces published this year - in no particular order.

We would also like to thank our Artist-in-Residence Nadia Toukhsati for creating fantastical drawings for our Writers Bloc Workshop Competition winners. If you haven't already done so, you can check out her work here and in the Bloc Features archives.
