BETWEEN DUSK & DAWN (Publishing House Sf Ierarh Nicolae, 2018) is the title of the third anthology of prose and poetry through which Mihaela Cristescu invites you to meet both Romanian and Australian writers. This anthology closes between its covers, like a treasure, the signatures of thirty-eight writers who have something to say to the world or just to themselves but aloud – and we all know writing has a loud voice, it echoes through centuries.
The launching of the anthology will take place at The State Library of New South Wales, on 23rd of March (11:30am-1:30pm, Metcalfe Auditorium). It will be the sixth Romanian/Australian literary event at the State Library coordinated by Mihaela Cristescu in collaboration with NEW Writers' Group Inc. - Western Sydney Writers.
For the past few years, we have become used to being spoiled with having Anamaria Beligan (Melbourne) and Luke Carman (Sydney) to present the writing, and this year will be no exception.
The event is the perfect framework for some of our invited writers to present their work. We will have on stage, with an introduction made by Co-Editor Sue Crawford: Alex Pleșcan (New Zealand), Smaranda Kafka, Paul O’Loughlin, Abdullah Noman, Belinda Curby, and fayroze.
As usual, we will have music(ians) entertaining us led by Fernando Andres, who we thank for constant friendship and support.
There will be a short drama produced by Carol Amos composed of snippets from the anthology.
All three volumes of the Romanian/Australian Anthology of Poetry and Prose (‘Pounding the Pavement’, ‘On the Wallaby Track’ and ‘Between Dusk & Dawn’) have been illustrated by Luminița Șerbănescu – our collaborator and friend from Ottawa, Canada.
The poster of the event is Sandra Segal’s creation – Sandra is the editor of the Canadian Art Magazine ‘Revista Alchemia’.
To those who consider themselves good friends of poetry and prose or good friends of ours (or both): we can’t wait to see you there and share with you our moment of joy and pride.
