    y separately published work icon Westerly vol. 64 no. 2 2019 18372829 2019 periodical issue 'This issue of Westerly, while unthemed, is as always the product of a system of order. It is curated, edited, arranged according to a sequence of publication. It follows certain methods, and is set out according to prevailing structures. Each issue exists within the context of what has come before, and what might come in the future. Even within each text, language has its own orders and forms, grammar determines expression. The issue is also testament to the individual—the function of the subjective within a system. With this issue, we are excited to introduce Paul Munden as our new Poetry Editor, taking forward the legacy of Cassandra Atherton’s work over the last four years. We have been very grateful to Cassandra, and we are thrilled that she will continue to contribute to our team, joining Lucy Dougan in the role of Commissions Editor. We are equally happy to be working now with Paul in the selection and curation of Westerly’s poetry offerings. On this occasion, and in this selection, our attention has been drawn to questions of order. Submissions dictate their own ordering of the world: the order of things rising to meet us, occupying our minds and bodies. (Catherine Noske and Josephine Taylor, Editorial introduction) 2019 pg. 99-103

    y separately published work icon Sūdō Journal Hot Under the Collar vol. 2 January 2020 18654860 2020 periodical issue 'In March 2019, when the call for submissions for this second volume of Sūdō Journal was released, north Queensland had just begun to recover from a deluge of catastrophic proportions. A nation wept as footage of inundated homes, decimated livelihoods and mass graves of drowned livestock were broadcast into its living rooms. Now, as this second volume of the journal reaches publication, it feels as though every other part of the country is caught in a firestorm. Our northern gaze surveys the conflagration with a mixture of pity, horror, and a desire to repay the kindnesses that we experienced less than a year ago. We hope our readers to the south are safe; know that you are in our hearts. How we, as a nation, respond to this disaster will be a test of our character. The hope is that we will come together to face adversity, rather than allowing it to drive us apart as it so often does. We need firebreaks far more than we need the trenches of ideological partisanship.' (Wayne Bradshaw, Introduction) 2020
