Launch Ahoy!

The times they are a changin’.

We’ve been very happy to be associated with the lovely people at Pigeons and their project, early harvest over the past year.

It’s a literary magazine published by children for children and takes submissions from children in grades three to six. Check out Pigeons website for more details.

And now, excitingly, Pigeons and harvest magazine present early harvest — a wonderful new literary magazine created by children from Melbourne’s west.

Melbournites, please come along to:

The Sun Theatre in Yarraville on Saturday 12 November from 11am.

Author Sally Rippin will be launching this wonderful new magazine with special readings by the young authors.

It’s going to a shipload of fun!

Launch Ahoy!

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 again, yes it’s us, again, in an online update-a-palooza

1) Cheers to you that have dropped us a line about our fifth issue. It’s been really lovely to see/read/hear your support for our magazine including those from Plume of Words, With Extra Pulp and Readings.

2) And as the interest generated from our first Opinionated Editorial has been huge, we thought we’d break with tradition and publish the piece in its entirety. Check out Davina’s editorial and the conversation occurring on Overland. Have an opinion? Then join in.

3) A few of you have mentioned that harvest hasn’t been easily accessible on your bookstore’s shelves. You can order a copy/copies direct from us. Please email us at writetoharvest@gmail.com with ‘copy please’ in the subject header and we’ll get our inboxes chattering. Before you know it, harvest will be making your home its own.

4) While we are yet to finalise a deadline for fiction, non-fiction and art for issue six, our poetry submissions are now closed. Our Poetry Editor, Josephine Rowe, will be reviewing the submissions over the coming months. 

5) Speaking of our wonderful Ed., big congratulations to Josephine for her winning entry ‘It doesn’t need to be a Ford. it doesn’t need to have radio’ which has won the National Gallery of Victoria’s Love, Loss & Intimacy Writing competition. Cheers also go to harvest columnist and Torpedo editor Chris Flynn for also being highly commended!

6) Next month sees the 25th Melbourne Writers Festival on the 27th August and we’re taking part in a free festival event, Magazine.  Magazine will present a rapid-fire showcase of the dazzling breadth of insight, entertainment and stimulation on offer in the nation’s best literary magazines. All from a refurbished shipping-container positioned on the River Terrace. Enjoy 15-minute performances, readings, quizzes and more, across both weekends of the festival. View the MWF program for more information.

Please come join harvest and friends on September 5th. We’ll have some literary chat, fun and games. Precious and non-precious snowflakes welcome.

Hola harvesters

Many thanks to you who joined Davina Bell at Berkelouw Books in Newtown to help celebrate harvest number five in our very first venture ‘up north’. Davina reported back on the wonderfully warm welcome that awaited her on arrival at Berkelouw, and especially enjoyed seeing (and also meeting), all you fantastic harvest supporters. We have to again say cheers to Anthony Levin and Ryan O’Neill for coming along and sharing their work with everyone. It’s great to have such terrific support from y’all. See some of the fun below.
