For me as a teacher, this shelf of writing is first of all its strikingly talented editors. They include career editors, yes, but also novelists, poets, artists, administrators, and teachers. They are all around us, and their ideas and words and skills are a feast that we savour. They become the arts fabric of our society a decade (or so) on from their year of dreaming drudging, discipline and bringing-forth their Verandah.
