Summer is here, and so is the December issue of Meanjin. In the new issue, Ashlynne McGhee finds hope in a new generation of young journalists, James Douglas looks at George RR Martin’s distinctive gift for narrative acrobatics, Katherine Hattam exhibits a series of works about the forgotten places in our cities, plus we present a host of new fiction, memoir, essay and poetry.
Meanjin relies on our passionate community of readers to support us, as well as generations of Australian writers. Now we want to know more about you, our readers: who you are and what you care about. If you haven't already, please take our 10-minute audience survey and enter into the draw to win an iPad Mini or a holiday book pack from MUP.
And in even bigger news, Meanjin is looking for a new editor to take over from our current editor Zora Sanders, who will be returning to study in 2015 (read more about it on Bookseller + Publisher). And while we are sad to see Zora go, it's always exciting to welcome a new person into our small team. Know the perfect candidate for the job?
