It is again with pleasure that I announce two additional editors to the Cordite masthead: assistant editor Zenobia Frost and interviews editor Corey Wakeling.
As an assistant editor, Zenobia Frost will be involved in a variety of editorial duties. Zenobia Frost is a Brisbane-based editor, writer and critic whose debut collection, The Voyage, was released in 2009 (SweetWater Press). Her poems have found homes in Overland, Stylus, Voiceworks and Mascara. She also serves as Rave Magazine‘s arts editor and Voiceworks‘ poetry editor. She is fond of strange myths, incisive verse, theatre, graveyards, tea, and punctuation.
In my search for a designated interviews editor, most leads routed me to Corey Wakeling. His poetry and reviews appear in Australian and international journals in print and online, with new work appearing in Overland, Southerly, The Black Rider, Jacket2, foam:e and Best Australian Poems 2011. He is a PhD candidate and tutor at the University of Melbourne, and reviews editor of the poetry journal Rabbit. A chapbook will come out with Vagabond later this year.
Astrid Lorange, guest-editor for Cordite 38: Sydney is deep in the throes of the poetry selection process. I can’t wait to see the results. Artwork from Vernon Ah Kee and Canadian-via-London artist Kim Rugg will also be featured, engaging with Lorange’s introduction. Feature works by Andrew Carruthers and Ross Gibson will provide their own take on Sydney. Interviews, blog posts are also in the works.
Now, back to help making this all happen …
