is coming … Not long now until the harvest team can finally look up from their proofing and editing and typesetting and feedback-ing to check out how the rest of Melbourne is faring under daylight savings. We’ve all been working around the clock to cultivate the next crop of fabulous pieces of fiction, poetry, non-fiction and art from Australia and the rest of the world.

Your submissions have been of such high quality that it’s once again taken us longer than expected to publish our next issue. So unfortunately the bad news is we’ll be sending back the feedback slowly but surely, by post and email. 

However the good/better/best news is that issue two is going to be a bumper Spring/Summer edition. Hurrah. So there’s even more fresh writing and art for you to feast on over the holidays.

We think we’ve created a really great ‘difficult second album’ and know you’ll be eager to have it in your home. On your bookshelf. By your bed. Under the Christmas tree. In your hand. Whichever way you choose, it’ll be available very soon. 

While the Melbourne launch details will be available soon, for our interstate harvesters, please keep checking this site as the list of stockists are growing. But don’t forget, no matter where you are, you can always purchase a copy direct from us. We do love hearing from you.
