Volume two is on the way

Registrations are now open for the next program of workshops beginning 7th of June, there are nine workshops in the series, and the sessions are all from 4-7pm on different days. More information coming soon, or even better just email for all the details and to register your space in this brilliant project. What will issue two look like and how are we going to fold it?

The EWF press fair

A buzzing part of the Emerging Writers Festival every year is the independent press fair that happens in the Atrium at Federation Square. Black clothed tables lined with all manner of books, zines, and magazines ready for perusal, collecting and swapping. We had a stall for the Periodical and managed to send home quite a few copies with new friends. Adelaide and Karen brought down copies of their own book projects, and so our stall took over a few tables.

Karen's solo book, meticulously handcrafted, all five copies sold out at the fair.

This friday we will be finishing off the last of the books in preparation for setting them free to the world, so they may wander and find new hands and laps to curl up into.
