Writers and photographers invited to be part of history

WRITERS, illustrators and photographers have a chance to be part of history, with submissions now open for the 23rd edition of the Idiom 23 literary magazine, scheduled to be published by CQUniversity later this year.

Idiom 23 has been published over the past two decades since it started as a joint venture between Journalism and Literary Studies staff members.

Over the years, submissions have been encouraged through the Bauhinia Literary Awards and, more recently, writers' workshops on Pumpkin and North Keppel islands.

Academics once synonymous with Idiom - David Myers and Liz Huf - have now passed away.

Another editor, Dr Lynda Hawryluk has recently moved interstate.

However, Bachelor of Arts graduate Caitlin Delaney and current BA student Reece Lawrence enjoyed working on the 22nd Idiom so much that they have now committed to producing the landmark 23rd magazine (as Editor and Assistant Editor respectively).

Contributor submissions are welcome by October 11 by email idiom@cqu.edu.au.

Details are via www.cqu.edu.au/idiom23.
