We put a call out to writers everywhere to test their limits and take a risk. We invited them to embrace that risk and use it to propel them off the edge of the traditional verandah and see where they landed. The writers within these pages took up this challenge and delivered diverse works that provoke a range of sensations. These writers explore their new terrain though loss, nostalgic memories of salty hot summers (the backs of your legs sticking to the car seat), the lilt of sorrow, the seduction of sound, and the spiralling discovery of the unexpected.
