Also published in Issue 8 was my first poem depicting Australian-Greek identity and Greek Diaspora, ‘Yiayia Maria Says’. I’m so happy that one of my poems representing multicultural issues is finally out there! It’s been a real struggle this year trying to get any of my poetry published representing these themes in Australia.
It has been a fantastic year being the Copy Editor for Grapeshot 2014. I have learned valuable skills and had an amazing experience that has given me extraordinary opportunities. It has reaffirmed my love for books, magazines, writing, words, and editing! And I’m so grateful I was able to create the ‘History in Reveiw’ column for Grapeshot, writing regularly about huge themes and topics that I’m passionate about. And a big thank you to all the editors at Grapeshot and the great effort and loyalty of our contributors, we couldn’t have done it without you guys. And a massive thank you to Mia Kwok and Sarah Basford – my two Editor-in-Chiefs this year.
Here is the article, “Diving Into The Wreck: Female History” that I wrote for Issue 3 of Grapeshot, with the theme, The Chase. Any comments or discussions would be great. I also wrote the fun and witty mythology Horoscopes for this issue – so any ancient history enthusiasts out there, enjoy! Also don’t forget to check out my other History in Review articles published under the ‘Regulars‘ column on our website.
It’s been a long time since I wrote a post, but I’ve been working really hard with a lot of editing work.
I’m excited to announce that the copy editing work I have been doing for Issue One of Grapeshot, Macquarie University’s Student Publication, has finally arrived. There are magazines everywhere around campus, and we were handing out free fairy floss today for O-Week at our uni. We’re hoping for the Grapeshot website to be working soon.
