Platform is an anti-literary magazine commissioned by the ever-enthusiastic Bruno Lettieri of Rotunda fame and sponsored by Victoria University. Platform 16 is based on themes of educational experiences, heroes and inspirations. Our biggest-ever issue features the management talents of myself and Emanuel Cachia; the editorial talents of PWE and Bachelor of Communications students Ron Burrows, Anna Brasier, Julia Kyle, Nina Mtanu and Emma Ware; and the design talents of Advanced Diploma staff and student Beata Cranswick and Karen Georgakis. Packed full of the famous, the talented, the witty and the compelling, this issue will make you see education in a new light.
What we see is what we get, but what we don’t see makes us miss so much more. A writer is someone who is not fully seen, or may be seen best through the prism of their writing. The Professional Writing and Editing book has been put together to show you the whole of us, not just a part. The writers who have contributed to this book have opened themselves up to the world, demonstrating not only their talents and skills, but their heart and souls.
We present to you Up Close and Personal, the 2013 Professional Writing and Editing Anthology, shining a light onto the inner workings of Professional Writing and Editing students at Victoria University.
