Volume 4 (2007) Tide Fourth Edition

Editors' note
'Time and tide waits for no man [sic]'
14th century proverb

Steady as the stars, Tide returns for 2007. Welcome to the fourth edition. The stories in this issue are both painful and beautiful. The poetry will glass you and the prose will lick your wounds. This issue is that note you wrote to an ex-lover or that mix tape your best friend gave you. They are the dirty secrets and bright dreams of the writers and artists from the University of Wollongong and greater Illawarra. The Tide literary journal showcases the works of talented emerging poets, prose writers, playwrights and visual artists. It is entirely produced by third-year editing students at the University of Wollongong. It aims to support the local literary arts and reinstate its importance in the community by providing a platform for publication without censorship. Tide is the summation of effort and compromise shared by our editors, fundraisers, designers, print officers, teachers, businesses, community members, artists and writers who have worked so hard to make this publication possible. To the students Tide is teamwork, stress and sleepless nights-but more importantly it is a source of great pride and a bastion of confidence that together anything can be achieved.
