Meanjin Vol. 72, No. 1

Zora Sanders

  • E-Book $12.99

Meanjin celebrates the Centenary of Canberra, with new writing from Gideon Haigh, Dorothy Johnston, Marion Halligan, Paul Daley and many more.

In March, Meanjin visits Canberra in the city's 100th year to take the pulse of our elusive, much-maligned Capital.

Gideon Haigh looks in-depth at a burgeoning Australian phenomenon—The Prime Minister's Library, Lorin Clarke holidays to Canberra and finds a city at a tipping point, and Andrew Croome visits Mount Stromlo remade after it's destruction in the tragic 2003 Canberra fires.

Frank Bowden invites us into the infectious underbelly of Canberra's clean streets and healthful citizenry. Drusilla Modjeska talks to Anne-Sophie Hermann and Paul Daley addresses that age-old question, what exactly does the word 'Canberra' mean, anyway?

Marion Halligan remembers the first years of what was meant to be a brief affair with the city, Sonya Voumard reflects on the strange life of a journalist in the middle of the action, but far from home and Yolande Norris is tired of having the same old conversations about the place she loves.

There is fiction by Canberrans whose names you'll know, like Dorothy Johnston and Alan Gould, alongside powerful new voices like Melanie Joosten. We present a vibrant collection of poetry from around the territory from John Foulcher, Elizabeth Lawson, Adrian Caesar and much, much more.
