We’re very proud to have launched JAAM 30, edited by Anna Jackson and her editorial team of Emily Tehrase, Anna Caro, Louise Burston and Brigid Kelly. It’s another fabulous issue, with a rich mixture, featuring the work of well-established writers, new writers for whom this is their first publication, and a whole bunch of treasures in between.
Copies for contributors and subscribers have been sent, and should soon arrive in a letterbox near you, if they haven’t already made it. If you’re neither a contributor or subscriber, you can get your paws on your very own copy by subscribing, buying (or ordering) it through your fav local bookshop, or emailing us and buying a single copy for $15 (plus postage if you’re not in New Zealand).
Some of the local contributors gathered for a small but perfectly formed launch yesterday afternoon to see it on its way. We had a few impromptu readings of poetry from the issue, and great deal of celebration. It was lovely to put faces to names of some of the people I knew only through their work, and fabulous to see writers I already knew.
We’re so proud JAAM has made it to 30 issues, over 17 years, and an enormous thank you to everyone who has helped make that happen.
