With the Spring/Summer bumper issue making a splash across the shelves of all good bookstores and copies winging their way into your hands, the harvest team is escaping for an all too brief festive break (visiting family, friends, festivals and Orangutans), so we can return all sparkly fresh for the next issue in 2009. 

We’ve been busy securing  some new stockists right around Australia,  so please support us, and them, by visiting their shelves over the holiday season.

Yet while we’re bamboozled with images of snow and sleighs and summer days, the work has already started for our autumnal issue. Deadlines are now up for issue three.  It’s a staged approach for our little team. 

Please take some time to read the submission guidelines, check out our influences and browse the  current harvest pages.  

Feedback from issue two is still being forwarded out to all the folk who took time to submit but unfortunately we didn’t miss the Christmas postal crush. So until it’s delivered into your post box or inbox, everyone at harvest hopes you escape with  some fine summer reading and have a lovely festive season.

Cheer cheer from all the harvest team.

Hurrah, our second issue has now successfully hit the streets after a bumper bash last Friday at the Order of Melbourne. It’s been another literary labour of love to bring out this  Spring/Summer edition. We hope you love exploring the words and art as much as we’ve loved putting it together.

It was another lovely crowd who came along and sweated it out on a steaming hot summer’s night. Thanks so much to every one of you who came along and supported us. harvest is so appreciative of your support, generosity and goodwill.

Big cheers to Geoff Lemon, Nathan Curnow and Paul Mitchell for providing a bounty of spoken word performances; to Imogen Stubbs for designing the projections that accompanied the evening; and, to Jacinta Shanahan for being the launch snaparazzi.

harvest magazine is also now a group on Facebook where we’ll post some more news and snaps. If you missed grabbing a copy of this sumptuous publication, contact us via writetoharvest@gmail.com or visit one of our fabulous independent stockists.
