January’s PPR is all about going places, and getting lost. Or going places to get lost. It’s about road trips, back-route highways, ghost towns, or paths that connect people the long way round.
Featuring stories by:
HADLEY (from Mr Fibby) of Our Nation’s Capital. He performs stories in a band, runs a radio show and is currently busy piecing together the You Are Here festival due to explode all over Canberra in March. He will have to travel up a highway to get here. You can’t get much more Method than that.
ZOE NORTON LODGE of the Many Talents including NYWF Co-ordination, theatre-making, editing, producing, and writing of hilarious and delightfully odd stories. Zoe can be found at Story Club, and published in Our Book, Going Down Swinging and Seizure Magazine.
FELICITY CASTAGNA, who can be found in Our Book, and whose collection of short fiction, Small Indiscretions, was published by Transit Lounge last year.
ROB WILSON of the Sonorous Voice. Rob usually writes poetry, and some of it can be found in the second Ampersand Magazine and on the Red Room Company’s website. But this time round we’ve bullied him into writing us a story.
SAM TWYFORD-MOORE who has also been published in Our Book, as well as in Meanjin, the LA Review of Books, the UTS Writers' Anthology, and all over the twittersphere. He also runs a podcast called the Re-Readers with Rebecca Giggs and Fiona Wright.
In the meantime, YOU should get writing a one page story about highways, and WE will try to dream up some kind of highway-related novelty drink.
