Paper Rock Magazine is produced annually by students of the Faculty of Creative Arts at the University of Wollongong. The first edition appeared in 2007.For further information, refer the Paper Rock faculty page.
Well, it’s been some kind of journey, but
here it is; issue six of Paper, Rock!
Looking back we realise some of it
could’ve been done differently to make
the final trek a little smoother. I’m sure
you’re all-too-familiar with the feeling
of longing for the past time you let slip
away so you could avoid gulping down
your 3rd Redbull at one a.m. to meet
your deadline tomorrow. It’s somewhat
nostalgic, which is the theme for this
issue. Issue six takes you through the
University of Wollongong’s past 60 years,
looks into the effects of BlueScope and
where Port Kembla is turning to beyond
the steel industry, and gives insight
into the horrific cruelty that is, puppy
farming. You will find fresh fashion ideas, the
best Wollongong dessert locales, prime
(yet cheap) holiday spots in our own
backyard, an upcoming local major
music festival and so much more.
We’d like to thank the contributors who
continually came through for us in this
issue. The people who were always first
to put up their hand to help, who picked
up the slack when we couldn’t, and got
things done without fuss. You know who
you are, so thank you!
It’s been a steep, somewhat vertical
learning curve, but we’ve enjoyed
bringing the past and present into a neat
package for you to read. We hope you
enjoy flicking through the pages, because
a lot of us have poured our hearts and
souls into them. The editors.
