Editorial Comment

Meniscus is a brand-new literary journal, published and supported by the Australasian Association of Writing Programs (AAWP), with editors from the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.


The title of the journal was the result of a visit made by two of the editors to the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, where James Turrell’s extraordinary installation, “Within, Without” (2010), led them to reflect on how surfaces, curves, tension and surfaces interact. In particular they were struck by the way in which the surface of the water features, and the uncertainty about how the water was kept contained, seem to analogise the excitement and anxiety inherent in creative practice, and the delicate balance between possibility and impossibility that is found in much good writing.
