The digital edition of The Victorian Writer: Feb-Mar 2020 is now available to download.
When we came up with Tension as a theme for ‘The Victorian Writer’, we had no idea that we’d be releasing this issue during one of the most tense periods in Australia in living memory. As bushfires rage across the country, the fate of entire communities, human and animal, rests on a sudden wind change, an unpredictable lightning strike. For those who have studied climate change, however, there is nothing sudden nor unpredictable about the current crisis.
‘We need writers to tell the stories of these times,’ urges Chris McKenzie in her PEN Melbourne column. But how do we tell those stories in ways that make people want to read them? Read writing by Alice Bishop, Sarah Epstein, Angela Savage, Michael Robotham, Justine Sless, Bel Woods, Jacqui Byron, Helen FitzGerald, Robert Whalley, Rosey Chang, and more, in our Feb-March 2020 edition of ‘The Victorian Writer’.
