Come along to an engaging panel discussion tonight highlighting what a literary journal really is and what is involved. To be held at 6pm for a 6.30pm start at Horse Bazaar the event will shed light on four local literary journals from The Lifted Brow, Voicewoks, Kill Your Darlings and Overland Literary Journal. You like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, donate to their Pozible campaigns, and you may even read them, but now you can join the host of the night, knower-of-literary-things Tim Coronel as he thoroughly questions the Editors about lit journals.
The exciting panellists/tributes are:
—Sam Cooney, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of The Lifted Brow
—Elizabeth Flux, Editor of Voiceworks
—Rebecca Starford, Publishing Director and Editor-in-Chief over at Kill Your Darlings
—Jacinda Woodhead, Deputy editor at Overland Literary Journal
Entry is free, but bring along some cash to spend at the bar and buy a copy of a literary journal. And don’t forget a friend or two!
TIM CORONEL is a freelance editor, writer and publishing consultant and the coordinator of the annual Independent Publishing Conference for the Small Press Network. He is a past editor of Thorpe-Bowker’s Books+Publishing magazine and Weekly Book Newsletter, and has somehow eked out a living of one form or another in the world of books for a quarter of a century (which makes him feel old)
KILL YOUR DARLINGS is Australia’s most lively and entertaining cultural publication. KYD was founded in 2010 by Rebecca Starford and Hannah Kent, and today it comprises a quarterly edition, a website and blog, regular events series, a writers workshop and an online shop.
OVERLAND is the most radical of Australia’s long-standing literary and cultural magazines, and celebrates its 60th year in 2014. Overland’s mission is to foster new, original and progressive work exploring the relationship between politics and culture, especially literature, and to bring that work to as many people as possible.
THE LIFTED BROW makes magazines from Australia and the world. They publish:
— A giant print version every two months
— A digital version every fortnight, which features new and different content from the print version
— And a whole lot of other new and interesting content on their website.
VOICEWORKS is a national quarterly magazine that features exciting new writing and art by young Australians. It is a unique opportunity for people under twenty-five to publish their poetry, short stories, articles, comics, illustrations, drawings and photos.
