Brows will be lifted…

* New short story of mine in The Lifted Brow 6: Atlas, being launched this Friday! My story ‘Obsolescence’ is a bit of a dark, modern fable set in Bergen, Norway, where my relatives are from. The issue is going to be awesome, with a piece of writing about every country in the world (not to mention, fiction by David Foster Wallace, and a CD). More info about the issue can be found here. And, Melburnians, the launch info is here. I’ll be there, dressed as a Norwegian fisherperson, scribbling in your copy of the book – if you’ll let me.

* Tara Moss has been doing a very cool series on writers’ desks: ‘I’ve shown you mine now you show me yours’. And I showed her mine. She calls me Lit-Hunter (*blush*). Check it out on her blog, The Book Post, here.

* I have a piece in A Cafe in Space: The Anais Nin Literary Journal. Contents and ordering details, here.

* The lovely Rachel Hills has some good news for emerging writers: Jean Hannah Edelstein – who’s signed to Random House in the UK and used to work at a literary agency – has offered to assess and offer feedback on a reader’s submission packet for free (something she’d normally charge some decent pounds for). This is a really awesome opportunity for an aspiring author, and Rachel thought it might be something LiteraryMinded readers would be interested in. I agree! Here’s the link.

* I also have this coming up…

The Future of Reading

Is reading headed in the direction of iPhone applications and kindles, or will books and newspapers outlast new technologies? With Karen Andrews, Angela Meyer and Louise Swinn.

* I just found out one of my blog posts will be published in Miscellaneous Voices: Australian Blog Writing No.1. It’s not out until April, so I’ll tell you more about it closer to the date.

* Other things… can’t wait for you to see the March issue of Bookseller+Publisher (out mid-Feb), we’ve been working very hard on it (you can check out the emag of the summer issue on the B+P website). And soon I’ll post more details about Perth Writers Festival, Adelaide’s Format Festival, and a few other things I’ve been working on…

  1. I’m considering coming to The Lifted Brow launch. I’ve got something submitted for the next issue too so would be cool to say that I’m published in the same publication Angela Meyer and Christos Tsiolkas were.

  2. Aww shucks. Come along – it’ll be fun! I think you might like my story in this one, actually – bit different to most of the stuff I’ve written. Pretty dark, too.

    Best of luck with your submission! This is the first time I’ve gotten in (I think it’s the second time I’ve submitted).

  4. Congrats on all your news Angela! Looking forward to Atlas, looks great. I just found out one of my posts is going to be in Miscellaneous Voices too – snap! (I was quite chuffed when I found out some of the other writers who are also involved, you included)
