**Paul Mitchell** wonders why we habitually ignore the second verse of our national anthem ... the one that promises to share our boundless plains with those who come across the seas. Maybe it's because we don't want to share these days? He calls for those of us who don't paint our faces with the Southern Cross to sing the whole song ... or refuse to sing it at all., We spoke to Wendy about working in her pyjamas, writing to discover the new, and why she wouldn't mind a date with the protagonist of her work-in-progress., Geordie Williamson has just been appointed the new fiction editor of *Island* magazine. We spoke to him about his new appointment, his background as an editor for Duffy & Snellgrove, what he looks for in a story, and his approach to editing fiction … plus, tips for writers who might like to submit! and **Meg Mundell** tells how a weekend job as a fairy for hire gave her some valuable lessons for her writing career ... despite (or because of) working hungover, forgetting her wings and annoying parents by hyping up her small charges.
