This edition themed “The meaning of life” features an interview with Alice Pung exploring her meaning of life.

It includes a poem inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese Zen Master, a commentary by Rosey Chang on the Dalai Lama and poetry by myself, Rosey and George Mouradatis. We also have a sound piece by Josh Goldman, for seven voices without words and a review of a workshop I attended at the University of Wollongong on Asian/Australian Values: New Directions in Australian Literature.

The next issues will be themed “Drama” with the closing date for submissions April 30 2008 and the proposed launch date of 30 June 2008.
