Another Newsletter Bites the Dust — Tony Rogers


Just kidding.

On one level, response to the first issue of Bikwil has been very encouraging. Since most of you guinea pigs want to be kept on the mailing list (including our friends interstate and overseas), in circulation terms our prospects look good. Thank you all. Of the compliments received a particular favourite was the one describing Bikwil as “whimsy for sanity’s sake”.

On the other hand, although some extra heroic readers have offered their services, to date an overall reticence about contributing is evident. Now, it’s conceivable that for a while Bikwil can continue being written by three or four people, but ultimately the life of a magazine like ours will depend on the shared experiences of its wider readership. So who else will volunteer a piece on something they personally feel enthusiastic about?

And what of you short story writers or poets out there? Or you cartoonists? Let’s hear from you.

Or if you don’t want to write yourself, why not suggest some new ideas for others to take up?

It goes without saying that letters to the editor are always welcome.

No kidding.
