Cherish the arrival of Winter and with it the opportunity to explore new activities that are more conducive to the cooler weather. As the perfect antidote to a world full of constant chatter and distraction, dedicate some time to handcrafting something meaningful. Whether this is the perfect floral arrangement with some in season Australian natives sourced from the surrounding bush, or the precise angles of an origami iris, created from Audrey’s very own beautifully patterned paper, this issue invites you to slow down and savour your own ability to forge something meaningful.
Be inspired by the charming tale from our Round 3 Short Story winner to try your hand at creative writing and enter the fourth and final round to become a published author and prize winner. Revel in the comfort of a syrup-soaked Lemon, Blueberry and Rosemary Cake recipe or sit back and armchair travel to the wonders of Marseilles. Whatever you choose, rest assured that Audrey will be your faithful companion throughout, inspiring you to savour those precious self-care moments all the more.
