Seems our defence system has fallen into unusual hands. According to Age arts writer Annie Stevens a bunch of would-be playwrights attending the Emerging Writers’ Festival are trying to cope with naval gazing. Maybe they sit on the shores of Port Phillip Bay seeking inspiration and keeping an eye open for enemy ships.
Meanwhile, up the front of the book, Age reporters tell us of events happening at the tautologous time of ”about 10pm on Wednesday night” and the conflicting ”at about” 4pm. A sub-editorial day off perhaps?
