‘Open it up, this catalogue of memory in black-and-white, where the mind may wander ...’

Take the passage through the cellar door, as the pages of this anthology lead you down dark steps into a room lit up with ideas, words and wonder. Skip across continents, see colour anew, dress in the costumes of loved ones or fall through the earth into a world below.

The University of Sydney's Master of Publishing students bring you a selection of creative works from our finest emerging writers.
