I'm loving working at Express Media, where things are fast-paced and ever changing. The organisation has so many opportunities for young writers it sometimes feels impossible to keep up.
The Pun has finally finished up for the year, with Melbourne International Comedy Festival sadly over. Well, I say sadly, but really it comes as a relief after such a hectic period. Any and all success for our publication this year is due to our editor, Rose Press, and the amazing team of writers who contributed. They did an awesome job.
Another edition of Green magazine has gone to print. I had the pleasure of working with a new designer this edition, rather than doing it all in-house. Libby Henstock made it very purty indeed, and I think the content was all incredibly timely and relevant. Mostly discussing political language and behaviour in the public sphere, there was a lot of fodder thanks to the recent anti-carbon tax rallies.
I'm madly preparing for National Young Writers' Month at Express Media. It takes place in June, and is an opportunity for young writers to set their own goals, which the NYWM team will help them to meet. I'm yet to set my own goal, but I have a feeling it will be something to do with updating this blog more recently. I need the pressure to get me back into a regular writing practice. It's easy to tweet away and forget to delve into issues more substantively.
