So there it was, a launch or two for harvest in Melbourne. We made it, and quite a lot of you did too. The numbers swelled as after more than 12 months of juggling our fulltime jobs, part-time studies and sometime lives, we managed to bring our labour of love to publication.

Thanks so much to Eurotrash for letting us drink and dance the night away on Friday 13th June and Readings Carlton for hosting us with warmth and wine on Saturday 14 June.

We love that you came along to show your support for our endeavours, braving the wild wintery weather that decided to accompany our launches. We loved it so much that we’re even prepared to show ourselves in some random, candid snaps, enjoying the festivities and fun of Friday night with you.

The weekend rundown included readings from Meg Mundell, Jack Cassidy and Andy Jackson, a toe-tapping spoken word performance from Geoff Lemon, a bountiful raffle and visual slide plendour from Imogen Stubbs. It was fast and furious but we hope to do it all again soon. 

So, here’s to the first issue of harvest!

While we’re still dusting off the printing press, debating typography and discussing the pros and cons of a well placed unspaced ellipsis, the harvest train is now gearing up for its June release. Yes harvesters, you know this has been a topsy-turvy journey, but it’s all going to be worth it when our incredible issue one hits the stands next month.

The harvest team has busied itself these past few months, digging down and cutting back, transplanting and planning for the long term sustainability of our brand new magazine. We digested an amazing bunch of submissions. We watched the sultry autumn days fade away and sometimes even wondered whether harvest may have to take an early hibernation. 

But, our small band has successfully toiled together. The literary seeds are sown and harvest is definitely on its way. 

Details on the launch will be listed soon and information distributed to all our fabulous supporters/subscribers. We’ll also post details on those splendid stores where you can pick up your very own copy of the very first harvest.

We hope to see you out and about in Melbourne town, helping to celebrate the publication of a magazine dedicated to showcasing new and emerging artists. 

We hope you’ll love reading our first issue. It’s for you.

Alas, like much of Australia, harvest has also been touched by the severe drought gripping the nation. While our spirit remains stoic, our time has begun to run dry.

We’re still dedicated to bring you a beautiful literary bounty, but our publication date has been pushed out. Although we’ve been working as fast as the daily grind allows, our first issue will find its way into your hands, hearts and minds mid-2008.

Lots of love, sweat and typing has gone into providing author feedback. Letters should be trickling down through the post over the coming weeks.

Submissions for issue two are still warmly welcomed and raptuously received.

Your understanding and support for harvest has been fantastic. Thanks for helping to keep the literary landscape flourishing.

Alas harvesters, we’ve finally had enough of our email bug and have reluctantly decided to spray the crop.

If you joined up via the old email address, don’t panic. We’ve rolled you over into the new paddock. You’ll keep hearing all of our news over the coming months…. probably more often than you want, with harvest about to leap into the literary landscape.

We also love hearing from you and reading your fine words. Thanks for all the happy thoughts and words of support.
