hello harvesters

Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who braved the wild, wintery Melbourne weather to join us for the launch of our fifth issue. It was a mighty cold June evening but  your warm souls helped fill the 1000 £ Bend Gallery for the celebrations. There were golden tickets (lost and found), a bounty of prizes claimed (including an ace Crumpler bag) and connecting conversations over mulled wine and cupcakes.

Many thanks to the spoken word performers who came and shared their work with us all. Hurrah for Josephine Rowe, Nathan Curnow, Ruby Murray, Maxine Clarke and David Astle.

Big cheers to Khancoban for their alt-country rock tunes, which lent a lovely musical bent to our event

And super thanks to our issue five cover artist, Dawn Tan, for allowing us to share her images of the night.

Now some big news for our harvest friends living in/near, or around Sydney.

Berkelouw Books in Newtown have very kindly offered to help us celebrate issue five with you all. harvest’s very own Davina Bell will be venturing up for the Sydney launch on Friday 25 June 2010.

Please come along to help celebrate issue number five at one of our lovely stockists, Berkelouw Books, from 6pm. There’ll be readings, wine and frivolity. We’d be delighted to see you there!
