Voiceworks is Australia’s premier youth literary journal, published quarterly by Express Media. For 30 years, we’ve been the stomping ground for remarkable young storytellers and have fostered some of Australia’s greatest literary talents.
Voiceworks Issue #105 ‘Nerve’, is stuffed to the gills with more of the best fiction, nonfiction, poetry and visual art by Australians under the age of twenty-five.
Inside ‘Nerve’ you’ll find fiction that’s obsessed with Bert Newton and the hottest parking inspector you’ve ever met. Nonfiction cycles over kind highways and drops you off at the Kew asylum. Poetry introduces you to your very own clone and a fern that doesn’t say ‘I love you’ back. But whatever you do, don’t follow the comics into the forest.
I hope you enjoy exploring Voiceworks #105, ‘Nerve’, and thank you for supporting Express Media. Your support ensures that we continue to provide young writers with feedback, development opportunities, and a safe space for experimenting and publishing their work.
