Verandah thirty-one 


Cover image: ‘Broken Bears’ by Joel Jeffery.

Three decades ago, Verandah was built on a love of art and literature. From foundations laid with little more than wide eyed enthusiasm, it has risen brick by brick into a well-known, if not haphazard fixture of the community. Poets, Painters and Philosophers from all over the world scribble and stroke their way along the bare walls. Soaking the carpet with colour, filling the bathtub with ink.

The house hasn’t always been here, and even though its owners are truly unreliable-only ever staying one year, it remains, doors open to all. It isn’t always clean or tidy, and when it storms the roof leaks. But there’s always someone home, waiting for a visitor, for a story, for you.

Verandah thirty


Cover image ‘The Local’ by Jimmy Mollison.

What does it mean for a literary journal, arrival at the thirtieth issue?

It could mean the journal has lasted too long. But the provisions for editorship of Verandah protect it. Every year, half a dozen new editors arrive, to learn new skills and give proof of their ability.

So: more than one mind at work; instead of one person’s taste prevailing. Next, the students are challenged by their appointment to showcase the highest standards in their field—perhaps as preface to editorial careers. Finally, they are competing with previous editing teams, not only for formatting and layout but for the freshness and merit of their choices.

Verandah twenty-eight (SOLD OUT)


Cover image ‘Floating Eyes’ by Stacey Williams.

Finalist in the GASA Printovation Awards.

This issue of Verandah marks twenty-eight years in its publishing history. To offer some perspective, the launch of our first edition was in the same year that John Farnham’s ‘Whispering Jack’ was released, and its synth drums sounded brand new. This collection of creative curios will surprise, delight and amaze those who stumble upon it, as so many of Verandah’s editions have done since we were first told ‘You’re the Voice’.

Without getting too sassy about it, we invite you to plumb our depths of poetry, art and fiction that this years editors have selected for your exploratory pleasure. While you ask yourself if a cross-platform anime baroque is ‘still art’?, reflect on the meaning of family one artist’s rusted picket fence suggesting a different (or perhaps similar?) counterpart to another’s exposure of domestic secrets.

We present this edition of Verandah as the newest addition to a long and proud publishing legacy, and invite you to enjoy this eclectic assembly, compiled from hundreds of submissions from around the world. As lovers of written and visual artistry, we hope that this collection speaks loudly of our care and passion for this addition to Verandah’s rich history.

Verandah 28 is SOLD OUT and can no longer be purchased.

Thank you for continuing to support Verandah!
