A Monthly fix
My Monthly arrived yesterday! It's as good as I'd hoped, though I'm still dipping my way through it. So far, the essay on Queensland, the piece on the new Socceroos (Australia's soccer team) coach Guus Hiddink are promising. And more.
Please note: No, I don't work for The Monthly, nor do I get any kick-backs from the publishers for mentioning their magazine in my blog (I wish.) In fact, after the freebies of the magazine's first two or three editions, and a free el-cheepo bag given out at the writers festival, I've been a paid up subscriber and don't get any freebies. I just like their good writing, and want to support a new publishing innitiative – especially one whose ideas I appreciate – to survive its first year and more.
