Peninsula Writing – #2 – Spring 1983

penwriting_02_ 01

The second issue of Peninsula Writing came out in Spring 1983, featuring a vibrant orange-yellow cover, based loosely on the waves at Cape Schanck by Gavin Duffy.

The issue had a bit of a nautical theme from the cover on with the opening story A Struggling Brigantine by Joe Mann, poem called Petrel over Port Phillip Bay by Donald Whitelock, Mornington Peninsula Sketches by Fiona Capp and Human Being as Whale by Warren Breninger. A short story called The Barbeque by Archimede Fussillo, was another feature.

The issue also featured additional artwork by Phillip Mead and J.Lewis.

In the review section, I reviewed Geoff Page’s Shadows from Wire and David Malouf’s Fly Away Peter, Anne Williams reviewed The Strength of Tradition, edited by R.F.Holt and Liam Davison reviewed Victor Kelleher’s Africa and After.
