We are very excited here in the Westerly office – not only do we have some great submissions coming in for our November issue, but our August Subscription Drive is in full swing. Thanks to all who have got on board to support us thus far – and if you haven’t already, check out the great deal at: www.westerlymag.com.au/subscribe. For the next two weeks, you will not only receive a free copy of issue 60.1, but you will also go in the draw to win one of two great book packs, with some wonderful titles!
In other news, I have had the honour today of a tour through UWA’s Special Collection with librarian Erin Fraser. This was hugely exciting, with a wonderful array of manuscripts (including that of AB Facey’s A Fortunate Life), first editions and rare books there to enjoy. Have a look at the collection at http://www.library.uwa.edu.au/about/collections/special. All the titles are available for research! More coming on this soon…
