You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘harvest magazine issue two’ tag.

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.

is coming … Not long now until the harvest team can finally look up from their proofing and editing and typesetting and feedback-ing to check out how the rest of Melbourne is faring under daylight savings. We’ve all been working around the clock to cultivate the next crop of fabulous pieces of fiction, poetry, non-fiction and art from Australia and the rest of the world.

Your submissions have been of such high quality that it’s once again taken us longer than expected to publish our next issue. So unfortunately the bad news is we’ll be sending back the feedback slowly but surely, by post and email. 

However the good/better/best news is that issue two is going to be a bumper Spring/Summer edition. Hurrah. So there’s even more fresh writing and art for you to feast on over the holidays.

We think we’ve created a really great ‘difficult second album’ and know you’ll be eager to have it in your home. On your bookshelf. By your bed. Under the Christmas tree. In your hand. Whichever way you choose, it’ll be available very soon. 

While the Melbourne launch details will be available soon, for our interstate harvesters, please keep checking this site as the list of stockists are growing. But don’t forget, no matter where you are, you can always purchase a copy direct from us. We do love hearing from you.

As Melbourne shivers its way through one of the coldest winters in 20 years, harvest has been donning the winter woollies and pounding the pavement with bundles of magazines for sale. We’ve embraced the warm glow of independent shops across Melbourne (and some small forays interstate), and been so very heartened by your online requests. Slowly but surely our handsome publication is getting out there…

But it hasn’t just all been battling broken brollies and ducking into heated cafes in search of the perfect chai latte this winter as your submissions have once again provided us with a bucketload of fine reading. The quality has been amazing and we’re overjoyed at the array of talent you’ve shown. 

With flecks of white apple blossoms starting to dot the suburban landscape, the harvest thaw has begun and we’re cranking up for a super Spring/Summer bonanza edition. The team are making some selections, and will soon start contacting you or sending through our feedback. It’ll take a bit but we’ll respond to all of you who have taken the time to submit as per the guidelines.

We’ve chosen a theme to begin and we’re now on the hunt for art, illustrations, graphics, collage or photography. Check out the artists page for some more details. Art submissions can be emailed to our art director at harvest.artwork@gmail.com by Monday 15 September.

*but please don’t send through your fiction, non-fiction or poetry submissions to that e-address, we’d love to still see it through writetoharvest@gmail.com 

Trust you’re keeping yourself toasty, enjoying the array of literary events around Australia, with a lovely copy of harvest by your side.
