Welcome to the ECU South West campus library and the celebration of our Arts alumnus, Leslie Thiele’s new collection of short stories, Skyglow. Leslie studied here for six years or so and graduated from our Bachelor of Arts course in 2018. I am very privileged to have this long involvement with her work and with […]
To our community, In response to COVID-19 we have closed our office, but our staff, in self-isolation, are busy trying to minimise the disruption to our publishing ventures. In the coming months we’ll be releasing Skyglow, a debut collection of short stories by West Australian author Leslie Thiele, and we’re very excited about it. These are […]
By David Milroy Murandoo A Murandoo bathed in the final embers of the day, unaware that its blood red anthill platform had unmasked its speckled camouflage. Bailey slammed on the brakes and leapt from his Toyota, chasing the lizard across the dry riverbed and up onto the bank. Before it could scurry into a hole […]
By Paul Hetherington Tumultuous, for months the aftermath of fire— burnt stumps, spindles of trees, ash rising on the slightest wind, wafting, sinking like particles of memory, nights charred with recollection, cries chasing conversations, and incalescent weather like 40 days of sunstroke darkening the district.

At daybreak I follow you, search for footholds. Soft dawn light lifts above the horizon, tilts me horizontal. I half-watch the loose ground, half-watch the notch-notch-notch curve of your spine press-press against your shirt as you climb the incline ahead of me, I climb; I am inclined. You lead me to the top of a […]
I first met Emily in 2013. But I’d been following her blog, The Incredible Rambling Elimy, for a year or two before that. So I knew she worked in a bookshop, that she loved reading as evidenced by the 100+ books she reviewed each year. I also knew she was an aspiring author, and had […]
Can you tell us a little about yourself, and how you got started as a designer? Hello! I’m Marie, an illustrator from Singapore. I’ve always enjoyed story-telling, and drawing it out in particular, which would explain how I ended up in animation. After graduating, I still wanted to continue telling stories, but not in the […]
You worked with the writers from the Singapore side of this collaboration on the story each of them submitted, but working with us, and with Ethos, two independent publishers, has meant that you have been involved in small and large ways across the whole publication. Tell us a bit about your role as Editor for […]
