Voiceworks #131 Strike


SKU: N/A Category:


Ding ding ding! Voiceworks Issue #131 ‘Strike’ has entered the ring, and it’s a winner. This knockout issue features a suite of dynamite photography from Clem McNabb, marking our first foray into photography in our pages. Our striking cover art by Ruby Dawson makes a beautiful home for the punchiest writing and art from young people across the continent.

In this issue our contributors rage against capitalism and colonialism. In Notes on Damp, Anastasia Dale takes us through a horrifyingly familiar tale of renting which is accompanied by an immersive soundscape. In Irish Ghazal, Scout Manuel uses the ghazal form to try and make sense of the cyclical violence of English imperialism. ‘Strike’ also looks at bodies as sites of struggle and liberation. Mel Bandara’s comic Colours of Pain and Christine Le’s artwork Pang Pang Pang! take a bold look at chronic pain. In Swimming on the Solstice, Theodore Harkin explores swimming as a practice of bodily connectedness as a trans person.

Dive into fiction about giving birth to demons and being followed by swarms of ants, and poems about lullabies and grieving in the backseat of your family car. And don’t miss out on Henry Tran’s winning story from our partnership with the Dymocks Beyond Words short story competition in 2023.

With all this and more, Voiceworks ‘Strike’ is sure to deliver a knockout punch!
