One section entitled 'Outsiders' is a shortened regular edition; the other section 'Another Country' , guest edited by Rosie Scott and Tom Keneally, features the writing of asylum seekers remaining in detention in Australia and those recently released. The writing was sourced with assistance from refugee advocates and community leaders. This section has also been published as a limited edition for PEN and the 2004 Sydney Writers' Festival.

Refugitive: A One-Man theatre Work, Shahin Shafaei , 2003 single work drama

'Scene A small room with a mattress in one corner. There is a dirty bed sheet on the mattress. The whole atmosphere is lit by a blue fluorescent light, covered in the ceiling by a cage. Suddenly the door of the room, which is located in the back, will open and a MAN will be thrown in. He tries to stand up, but he feels pain in his stomach, so he bends and tries to bear it.'
