You are so cool! You look so nice today! How are you doing? Are you doing swell?
Gosh it feels like we’ve been apart for so long, and we HAVE, because we (Sian, James, and Sam) are all together in Melbourne for the Emerging Writers’ Festival! Wow!
Along with attending some rad panels and getting saturated with inspiration, we’ve been ~networking~ and ~repping the mag~ all over the show but mostly at the SCUM X VOICEWORKS BOX SOCIAL on Saturday afternoon. Boy howdy that was a fun time! It was a delight & a pleasure to meet all the cool cats from the Voiceworks editorial committee and all the other talented and charming guests—thank you SO much for coming along, and thank you as well to everyone who participated in our #boxsocial Twitterfall–wow! 2013!! We had readings from Jessica Alice, Broede Carmody and Oliver Mol (Sam said some junk also) and the whole thing was facilitated by the v. outstanding Kat Muscat. Everyone is so clever and beautiful and patient with Sian’s chicken stories and we’re all still blushing about it.
Sam Twyford-Moore and the EWF crew have been putting on an amazing festival and it’s a thrill to be here with Scum. Thank you all SO MUCH for reading and contributing and being our friends, and if any Scum readers are at the festival, tweet at us and we can hang out IRL! Regular Scum programming will resume on Wednesday. Y’all have a wonderful week.
Lots of love,
The Scum Team
