    Doomsday

    Written by Bec Kavanagh

    Edited by Lily Mei, Thomas Wilson Artwork by Max Prentis

    Last Thursday the world ended. The kids and I were at Maccas.

    ‘Would you like fries with that?’

    I said yes, but the power for the deep fryer had cut out and the oil had started to set.

    Falling

    Written by Emily Larkin

    Edited by Thomas Wilson, Lily Mei Artwork by Max Prentis

    I am falling, slowly falling, into stars. Spiralling into a tide of darkness sprinkled in light. The swell catches and envelops me. My head is tossed with foam. The water cradles my face, strokes my hair, and still I fall.

    Unravelled

    Written by Tom Lodewyke

    Edited by Lily Mei, Thomas Wilson Artwork by Max Prentis

    Here comes the Armaguard truck . It comes every Tuesday with change for the tills, but it also carries a more precious cargo – the sweaty-fingered thrill of a secret love. Me and Matt sit on milk crates in the loading dock. I unwrap my sandwich: peanut butter. Matt’s eating salami today.

    Arrival

    Written by Emily Crocker

    Edited by Thomas Wilson, Lily Mei Artwork by Max Prentis

    The creature never introduced itself.

    It walked through the front door one evening, sat down in the lounge room and started laying out its things. We were all too polite to ask its name, or where it was from, or why, indeed, it had visited us. So, we just… never spoke about it.

    Poetry Blast

    Written by Fiona Wright

    Artwork by David Henley

    Our last round of Epistles at Dawn focuses primarily on one main set of duelers – Elizabeth Allen and Mark Riboldi – who entered into a delightful correspondence through poetry. It was exciting to witness the exchange because each poet picked up on an image or idea from their counterpart and transformed it into something else entirely – quirky, tender, and occasionally bizarre.

    Hot Potato

    Written by Nadine Evans-Ker

    Edited by Lily Mei, Thomas Wilson Artwork by Max Prentis

    I realised today that I miss you. It has been so very long, and I was cruel. I dropped you like a hot potato when something better came along; I get that now. Well that something better was an illusion, a brief distraction as it turns out. It certainly was not fulfilling.
