After weeks of planning, filming, editing, late-night emailing, and nervously biting our nails, to see such overwhelming support for issue 3 of The Quarterly right from the get-go really does make everything worth it. From the start, The Quarterly has been an experiment to try and do things differently to the mainstream publishing industry. (Continued below)
By it’s very nature, an experiment is the combination of a varying elements to see what works and what doesn’t work. As we’ve been shown time and time again, when something works it’s a bloody marvellous feeling, but when it doesn’t work it can be difficult to unruffle your feathers, shrug your shoulders and try again.
Right now however, our feathers have most certainly been unruffled and shall remain unruffled for some weeks to come.
Huge thanks to our first backers:
