Hello loyal and lovely Killings’ followers! Just a little note to say we’re flat out with the Melbourne Writers Festival this week. Once we’ve shaken off our Festival hangover and calmed down after meeting all of our literary crushes (Junot Díaz! Janice Galloway! Teju Cole! *swoon*) we’ll be back on board, Monday 2 September.

Until then, follow the Festival fun via our Twitter (@kyd_journal) and the hashtag #MWF13. Tickets are still available for Meet the Editors featuring our very own editor extraordinaire Rebecca Starford. Get in quick before the session sells out!

We’re also holding some informal drinks on the final Saturday night of the Festival. Come to Beer DeLuxe at Federation Square – aka Festival Hub – from 7PM onwards on August 31. It would be wonderful to see you there.
