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.

Happy 2008 harvesters! We hope you had a fab festive season.

The heatwave gripping Melbourne has kept the harvest team stuck to our editorial desks as we feverishly prepare for edition one.  Hurrah for icy, cold fizzy pop and booming blasts of air con.

It’s all hands on deck as the first publication date draws near. Issue one authors will be notified very soon…if not already. And, we’re still working on providing feedback to all of you who have submitted. We can’t guarantee we won’t fall behind. We’re truly sorry about that. Our hands can only stretch so far.

Check out the submissions page for our Issue two Winter deadlines.

harvest has been given a great kick start with your submissions coming in fast and furiously. A humungous thanks to all those who have taken time to review our guidelines and submitted their work! It’s been amazing to see the harvest postbox and inbox brimming with entries.

We’re accepting submissions until 30 November so we’ll be reading all the pieces over the coming weeks. Please be patient with us. We promise to drop you a line as soon as we can.

Many thanks also to all the writers across Australia who’ve taken time out to say hello and register their interest in harvest. We really appreciate all your well wishes, and support for our literary venture.

harvest is due to sprout in March 2008.
