The Big Owl 2017 – A Magazine in a Weekend

We are proud to present our inaugural Magazine in a Weekend: created by 2017 Clunes Booktown Festival-goers and inspired by the Festival itself.

BIG OWL 2017

The Big Owl 2017

This magazine is a response to the places, spaces, people, experiences and ideas encountered by writers during the Festival this year. Contributors began with a series of flash workshops on day one of the Festival to get them started and then set off to find their inspiration. Workshops on editing, layout and design followed and then…the Big Owl was launched at the end of day two.

Thank you to all our contributors, presenters, magazines and journals for taking part, including: Tim Nolan, Andrew Masterson, Barbara Curzon-Siggers, The Big Issue Magazine, Kill Your Darlings, The Lifted Brow, Voiceworks, PEN Melbourne and FEAD and of course all of the volunteers, writers, book sellers and buyers who make the Festival happen.
