Phoenix 08/09: The Journal of the University of Sydney Writers' Society, Issue 3
This third incarnation of Phoenix is loosely themed on writing and is designed to bring our readers enjoyment, inspiration, and insight into others? creative processes. The University of Sydney Writers' Society is immensely proud of its annual anthology, but we are aware that publication is merely a single gear in the literary engine.For the first time, extracts of early drafts and editorial reflections have been included to expose the private considerations of the artist and sometimes secretive editorial practices. Readers will also find a selection of short stories, poetry and non-fiction including interviews with prominent figures in Australian literature, such as Judith Beveridge and John Tranter.However, the Writers' Society urges readers to remember that Phoenix is more than the sum of its parts. This journal is to us a kind of alchemy that preserves the promise of young writers, transforming the transient into the enduring. The theme of writing has made us very conscious of what motivates us to publish. Whether right or wrong in our belief, we compiled this anthology with the confidence that beauty is as profound as wisdom.
