On The Wallaby Track

Centre: Mihaela Cristescu, L:Carol Amos; R:Sue Crawford

There is something disconcerting about launching one anthology On The Wallaby Track while acquiring work for the next Between Dusk and Dawn (especially when a few writers are contributing to both) and being simultaneously on the cusp of promoting a different anthology altogether ie  the 2018 ZineWest. Bi-lingual poet Mihaela Cristescu, who heads the Romanian/Australian project, does an excellent job however of co-ordinating multiple tasks and inspires me to keep up.

I’m delighted to co-edit the English inclusions, which seem to be having a conversation in richly different voices. Lucky are those who can read all the works, Romanian and English.
