This issue also contains excerpts from the three long-form essays produced as part of the Kill Your Darlings Copyright Agency Investigative Journalism Mentorships. Daniel Burdon reflects on the fragile future of the Great Barrier Reef; Royce Kurmelovs highlights the effects of the closure of the Holden factory on Adelaide’s north; while Alexandra Potter looks at the NSW Government’s lock-out scheme and the rise of alcohol-related violence.
