Back in issue 73, we met The Letterettes, a quartet of typographically gifted gals, who scribble nice stuff for their adoring public in Melbourne. The lasses have also illustrated the cover of Begin, End, Begin: a #LoveOzYA Anthology, a sweet new book, chockfull of stories for young adults (and adults who are young at heart). Penned by the likes of Amie Kaufman, Melissa Keil, Will Kostakis, Ellie Marney, Jaclyn Moriarty, Michael Pryor, Alice Pung, Gabrielle Tozer, Lili Wilkinson and Danielle Binks (who also edited the anthology), the tales are a reminder of what brilliant writers we have here on our shores.
Should you choose to tuck into the tome’s pages, you can expect to read about the first-ever person born on Mars, a school excursion to a time-travel agency, and a fortune-telling witch queen who lives underground. Yes, it makes for quite a weekend of reading – and if you’d care to nab a copy, you can do so just over here. Or, if you reckon you’ve got some good karma in the bank, shoot through your details; we’ve got five of these lovely paperbacks to give away. Hurrah!
