The writing of this book:

I’ve already commented on the writing of the book (All the Way to Z) which is the source of the extracts making up this mini-mag so I’ll comment only on what led me to put this selection together. I’d attended a couple of meetings in Bairnsdale (2014, 2015) to do with the possible creation of an East Gippsland writers group and had had copies printed of an earlier essay (Gippsland’s first great book) with the intention of giving them to those who attended the meeting at which I hoped such a group would be formed. This reminded me that I started publishing mini-mags several years earlier as a means of getting my work in front of hundreds, even thousands, of people who would otherwise not have been aware of it. To put it another way, a mini-mag was a means of advertising my website so I started looking through my earlier writings to see if other selections could be republished in the mini-mag format. The piece about Emily Dickinson seemed a natural companion for my appreciation of Eve Langley, so I culled through the book of which it was a part and chose the extracts now reprinted as a good setting for Emily’s arrival in a place the reclusive poet would never have heard of.
