Big news this week, take my word for it.

Tuesday 16 September 2008

1. My String Quartet No.2 (Canon in Beta) continues its conquering of the southern hemisphere when the Redrawing show tours to Tasmania. It opens this Friday, 19 September, at CAST (Contemporary Art Space Hobart), 27 Tasma Street, North Hobart, and runs to 12 October.
More information about Redrawing can be found here. CAST’s website is… currently under redevelopment.
2. My “World Class Anxiety” post from earlier this year has now been published in a revised, improved form in the latest issue of Meanjin – volume 67, number 3.
The new, redesigned Meanjin is over 200 pages of fiction, essays, and poetry – including several contributions from fellow Sarsaparilla writers. Meanjin’s website is… currently under redevelopment.
  1. There was a sniffy appraisal of the new Meanjin in Saturday's Age. I thought Sophie's first issue was tops (although I understand it was partly the work of the old editor) and I'm looking forward to reading the new one. I like that she's shaking things up, and I especially like that she's scrapped the whole "theme" thing. I could never understand the point of that.

  2. I haven't seen any lately, until this new one arrived in the mail. It looks really good. The whole "theme" thing that some journals etc always feel compelled to go for every time has bugged me for years.
