Verandah 34

2019 Verandah 34

‘We are, as a species, addicted to story. Even when the body goes to sleep, the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories.’ Johnathan Gottschall, The Storytelling Animal, 2012.

I am very impressed by the Verandah 34 editorial team’s quality showcase of emerging writers and artists. Extensive professional collaborations have been essentials. Artists and writers, graphic designers, printers, industry advisers and sponsors have all contributed to producing these contemporary voices and views. Discover the award-winners, explore the perspectives, stay up all night enjoying the storytelling of Verandah 34 Literary and Art Journal.
