A diverse collection of poetry, short stories, song lyrics, novel extracts and illustrations from some of the most important creators today.

The anthology includes original stories from: Davina Bell, Meg Caddy, Shivaun Plozza, Peta Freestone, Scot Gardner, Barry Jonsberg, Meg McKinlay (with illustration by Kyle Hughes Odgers), Gayle Kennedy, Shaun Tan, Felicity Castagna, Amie Kaufman and Leanne Hall. Other contributors are Margo Lanagan, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Andrea Hirata, Arwa Abousamra, Trudy White, Alice Pung, Tony Birch, Wil Wagner & Lizzie Wagner, Courtney Barnett and Kate Miller-Heidke.
