Every day we encounter the unfamiliar. Yet there’s nothing so strange as to walk in another’s shoes. To gaze upon the world from their line of sight.
Sight Lines is the twenty-eighth collection from the prestigious writing program at the University of Technology, Sydney. It showcases fiction, memoir, scriptwriting and poetry from some of Australia’s most striking young voices. Meet the writers here.
This year’s foreword was written by Hannah Kent, whose debut novel, Burial Rites has received worldwide critical acclaim.
The editorial committee is a small group of student volunteers. They began their work in November, faced with the enormous task of selecting thirty-one pieces from over 350 submissions. They have spent the consecutive months working on each stage of the book’s publication, and are very proud of the collection they have produced.
Sight Lines was launched by Christos Tsiolkas at the Sydney Writers’ Festival, on Sunday 25 May 2014.
