Harvest Mach II

The second issue of Harvest magazine was successfully launched on Friday last week at the Order of Melbourne and is now out in selected shops, awaiting your perusal. It’s run by three enterprising locals with support from various councils and lots of love from volunteers. (If this was a hip-hop song I’d give props to Davina, Julia and Rachael, and shout outs to my ladeez Katrina and Amy.)

As the first issue did, Harvest presents ‘fresh Australian writing’, and is a mix of fiction, non-fic, illustrations and poems – much like the new-look Meanjin, but easier on the eyes: there’s no clever-clever (and bamboozlingly varied) typography. The standard is generally good and the illustrations are diverse and beautiful, especially the cover (above) by Luci Everett. Below are some of the spreads that were particularly purty.

Try places like the Brunswick Street bookstore or Readings to pick up a copy.
