You are invited to join us to celebrate an exciting year for Westerly, and the launch of our second print issue for 2016!
With a record-breaking submission pool, this diverse collection of work from 43 authors includes the voices of Cate Kennedy, Ouyang Yu, Anne Elvey and Paul Hetherington. Issue 61.2 contemplates the outward-looking, complex capacity of writing as a way of understanding both ourselves, and the spaces we live in.
Following on from the unprecedented success of our Indigenous Issue, 61.2 introduces the Indigenous editorship of Elfie Shiosaki. Featuring work from Timmah Ball and Marie Munkara, 61.2 embraces Westerly's commitment to publishing Indigenous content in every issue.
With the release of Issue 61.2 we also welcome our new prose editor, Dr Rachel Robertson to the Westerly team.
The issue will be officially launched by Delys Bird at the historic New Fortune Theatre at the University of Western Australia. Light refreshments will be provided.
Admission is free, but tickets are limited so RSVP is essential.
