Welcome to the first issue of StylusLit.
For those of you who have submitted and read the previous incarnation of StylusLIt, Stylus Poetry Journal, thank you all for your good wishes for the new publication. StylusLit includes more genres to accommodate short fiction and creative non-fiction, two genres which I think are generally overlooked. On our team is Andrew Leggett, fiction and creative non-fiction editor, Alison Clifton, reviews editor, while I am poetry editor.
In this issue, I interview Echo’s commissioning editor Angela Meyer, and The Courier Mail’s arts editor, Phil Brown, gives us a taste of growing up in Hong Kong. We get a peek at New York’s Gregory Vincent St Thomasino’s latest novel, Sydney’s Carlotta McIntosh’s childhood, and a short fiction offering from me.
Poets included are Richard James Allen, Stuart Barnes, Stuart Cooke, B.R. Dionysius, Zenobia Frost, Angela Gardner, Stu Hatton, Andy Jackson, Krissy Kneen, Jo Langdon, Andrew Leggett, Gershon Maller, Damen O’Brien, Duncan Richardson, Nathan Shepherdson, Paul Summers and Jena Woodhouse.
Read reviews of Helen Avery’s Loosely Defined, Stuart Barnes’ Glasshouses, Carmen Leigh Keates’ Meteorites, Ellen van Neerven’s Comfort Food, and Felix Calvino’s collection of short stories, So Much Smoke.
