Courtesy of Sophie Cunningham and the Meanjin crew, here’s some action photos from the Great Overland–Meanjin soccer game.
Speaking of which, the new edition of Meanjin is out now. The website glosses it as follows:
In the first of our series of CAL/Meanjin cultural essays, Lynden Barber explores the film festival scene and Anthony Burke considers the equation of life and death in a moving personal essay on the war on terror. David Astle describes the ticks and compulsions of a professional crossword compiler, Paul Kelly recalls the love, sex and theology behind a song on angels, and Robyn Rowland reflects on her personal muse. Sophie Cunningham talks to Morris Gleitzman about his holocaust novels Once and Then, James Bradley finds the deeper meaning within Battlestar Galactica, Jane Gleeson-White enters the dream-like worlds of story-telling traditions in the Middle East and their its incarnation on the web, and Ciannon Cazaly writes on footy and the culture wars. As well, we explore the possibilities of generative art and Liz Argall takes us behind the scenes of writing a comic. There is new fiction by Jessica Au, Stephen Orr, Gina Flaxman, Andrew Humphreys, Richard Lawson, Eleanor Whitworth, Damon Young and the third extract of Caroline Lee ‘s Stripped. Meanjin also features poetry by Iain Britton, Mark Tredinnick, Anne Elvey, Pauline Reeve and PiO.
