Oh-October. Just how did we get here? harvest has been kept so amazingly busy over the past few days/weeks/months with the literary, lifestyle and learning, that we totally forgot to let you know we’ve made the decision for issue six to bloom in Autumn 2011.

So the harvest team will make use of the dazzling daylight savings to deliver you dear harvesters another beautiful magazine to read.  We’ve received some wonderful submissions from you all, near and far, and we’re slowly responding to you.

And of course, your lovely words of support for us and our independent magazine are always much appreciated.

We’re really looking forward to creating the Autumn issue over the coming months, and seeing it out and about in 2011. Egads, that’s only 78 days away.

Adiós para ahora los amigos.

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!

Reading

Rather than dance around a mini-Stonehenge made of dominoes, the harvest team marked the winter solstice with a lavish high tea and then continued the assembling of issue three. We’re taking time to prune pieces and get-together good-looking art for those creamy, thick harvest pages. We hope to have a copy on your bookshelves towards the end of July…

A huge thank you to everyone that braved an icy cold Melbourne night and came along to support our fundraising efforts at Cinema Nova on 4th June. The snippets of conversations later overheard in Carlton’s bars and cafes indicated that the comedy about the film industry, WHAT JUST HAPPENED, generated some interesting chat from the harvest crowd. 

Thanks also to all the lovely fine literary folk who came and said hello to us at our stall at the Emerging Writer’s Festival Page Parlour on 31 May. We loved meeting you and hope you’ll come back and see us again soon.

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.
