Issue 4 | Autumn 2023

Welcome to issue four.

This issue we have not one, but two interviews. In the first, multi award-winning author Christos Tsiolkas talks about his fascinating meta-novel 7 ½ . In the second, Kate Hall and Timothy Ryan, the organisers of the inaugural Victorian Q-Lit Festival, talk about the whys and wherefores of putting together the state’s first queer literary festival.

Given this coincidental confluence of gay content, we declare this our first Queer Issue.



‘‘I wanted to write of the erotic… I detested the puritanism of contemporary progressives’
