The project that moved us

This year’s theme; connections, has foreshadowed all of the editor’s feelings towards this project.


Each editor was assigned to a number of pieces to edit. All the pieces of writing we received were fantastic and all the editors had a great time ensuring that the writing was of the highest standard, that each piece was the best version it could be. When flicking through the final draft of the project, I’ve been getting a jolt to see the pieces I personally edited in print.


Even though I did not write these pieces, I still feel deeply attached to them because I championed them. In this way each editor is connected to the pieces they personally edited and to the authors who wrote the pieces. Holding a copy of the anthology is a great source of pride to everyone who worked on this project, we have something physical to show for our hard work; it has become our pet and we all feel connected to it.
