During Melbourne Writers Festival 2014, Isobelle Carmody took part in a talk called "Do You Remember the First Time", where she joined five other authors at The Toff in Town bar to discuss their personal 'firsts'. To accompany that talk, Isobelle has allowed us to publish her short story, Bear Flower, on Obernewtyn.net, to be available to logged-in members at her request.

[hr][/hr]Bear Flower is a short story that was published in the 1996 anthology, The First Time II by Hodder Headline Australia Children's Books. In it, some of Australia and New Zealand's writers for young people come up with true accounts of actual "first times", from the very first glances to the aftermaths. As such, the reader's discretion is advised; this story contains sexual themes and isn't PG! If you're already a member of Obernewtyn.net, log in and, head straight to the story to read it in full: obernewtyn.net/bear-flower. If you're not a member yet, sign up, log in, then head to obernewtyn.net/bear-flower. Thanks very much Isobelle for letting us put Bear Flower up on the website!
