Literature has great power: in it we see ourselves reflected, and through it we can travel almost anywhere. Like a footprint, the impression of a good story will linger after the story itself has left us. In this edition of Tide, we contemplate desire and loss, confront addiction and sexuality. From the comfortable familiarity of Australian suburbia and rural communities, we travel across exotic landscapes and foreign cities to reach metaphysical planes and question reality. Finally, we return home. To contribute to the Tide legacy is a great privilege. The seventh edition stands as testament to all we have been able to achieve as a group in our past three years together, much of which would have been impossible without the support that surrounds us. With much love and thanks, we welcome you to Tide 2010.
