Desperately seeking writers, artists and other creative types:
'Hermes', the oldest ongoing literary journal in Australia, is looking for people to slip in between its covers. As an annual journal of creative work, Hermes has usually chosen poets, writers and essayists, but this year wants to spread its wings and have other creative types represented. "I'm still a literary journal at heart, but I want to be informed by zine culture. It's 2003 - and it's time for me to move on. About you: Aged 18-30 (unless you are a mature age student). Writers, poets, cultural theorists, illustrators, doodlers, sketchers, comic artists, photographers, painters, sculptors...you create work that can be reproduced on paper. Please direct all submissions and enquiries to me at email@example.com -- I need to hear from you by AUGUST 15, 2003." Hermes is funded by the University of Sydney Union.
